The town of Kali on the island of Ugljan to host Tunuara – a three-day fishermen feast with a variety of seafood dishes and great fun
The town of Kali on the island of Ugljan is hosting Tuanara, a local fishermen feast, again this summer. This event, organized by the Tourist Board and the Association of Kualish fishermen’s night, will take place on the town waterfront from July 14 to July 16.
The fishermen from Kali are globally known for their tuna catches, and this occasion is an opportunity for the visitors to enjoy this top-quality fish adored by many.
Croatian artist Ana Kolega will paint an 8-meter-long mural. No doubt, it will become an attraction. If you would like to learn tips & tricks for preparing fish dishes, witness a creative process of creating a mural, play games, dance under the stars or take photos of these memorable moments, choose Kali.
The people of this small town will present to you the way of living in this small town, authentic songs that are a part of their heritage, and the traditional food of the area. And all of that with a dash of art and music.
Irresistible flavors of grilled fish, donated by the Fishermen association Omega 3, Cromaris, and Jadran tuna, will tease your palates every day of the feast from 18:00 hours.
On Thursday, until 19:00 hours, 15 local teams will demonstrate their skills in Kali Bourdetto preparation. Freshly caught conger (gruževina), some other ingredients, and great entertainment are a part of a perfectly tailored recipe for this dish, prepared the traditional way – like always, above an open fire.
A professional jury will choose the most delicious Bourdetto around 21:00 hours. Soon after, DJ Bego will take over playing his rhythms and beats until the early morning.
On Friday, fishing experts and fishermen will gather at the 18th scientific fishing meeting. The party with delicious food will continue at 18:00 hours with grilled fish. FIGA, an enchanting women’s choir, will perform from 19:30 hours.
Visitors will also get a chance to enjoy a bit of local ethnic tradition until 20:00 hours, followed by the fishermen’s games. The later part of the evening is reserved for a concert of Croatian popular music performer Ivica Sikirić Ićo and the band.
Mažoret is an attractive dance, and when around 50 majorettes, 4 to 16 years old (from Ugljan, Pašman, Zadar, Vrsi, and Posedarje), will be performing on Saturday at 20:00 hours, it will be hard to resist the idea of enjoying this beautiful performance. A bit later, at 22:00 hours, Mladen Grdović and his band Romantic will take over the stage and close Tunuara with a concert.
