Find your new favourite picnic spot at Rokov Perivoj with the irresistible summer flavours of local small-scale producers every Friday from July 21st to August 11th.
Zagreb, July 18th, 2023 – In collaboration with the Zagreb Tourist Board, the Little Picnic will once again spread its blankets overlooking the city, this time at a new location – Rokov Perivoj.
After several years of being held in Bela IV Park, the Little Picnic is moving to one of the most beautiful urban green oases, Rokov Perivoj, due to the renovation of the former building of the State Hydrometeorological Institute.
There, it will gather happy people and small local producers once again, offering an abundance of delicious treats and special moments.
The first picnic blankets with a view of the city await you under the canopies of Rokov Perivoj on July 21st from 6 pm to 11 pm, after which the Little Picnic will continue telling its special summer picnic story every following Friday until August 11th.
The gastronomic offer, as always, is in the capable hands of a few small producers from the Mali Plac (Little Market), a well-known mobile market for local products. To quench your thirst, you’ll be able to choose from craft beers for every palate from the local brewery FRKA Brewery, summer cocktails made with local gin from Luftbremzer Gin Distillery, colourful Iskrena Matković wines, or cold-pressed organic fruit juices from OPG Korade’s garden.
Further exploration of the summer flavours from small local producers will guide you through options of delicate goat and cow cheeses, traditional prgice, krumpiruša, bučnica, and vegetable pancakes, homemade sourdough bread and buckwheat crackers, hummus and tahini spreads, hand-pulled apple and plum strudels, and flaky pastry pies with seasonal fruit.
From the Little Picnic menu, be sure to try relaxed conversations by candlelight, barefoot lounging on the grass, special shared moments, and the occasional wine stain. It is precisely these experiences, along with the old-town ambiance and local delicacies, that give the Little Picnic its special charm, placing it on the list of events you must visit at least once.
Therefore, if you’re spending the summer in Zagreb, reserve at least one Friday to enjoy all those simple things that come with the Little Picnic, let go of all your worries, gather your family and dear friends, take your partner on a romantic date, share a blanket and a bite with your dog…
The Little Picnic offers exclusively vegetarian options, and for vegan and gluten-free choices, check with the producers on-site. All ingredients are sourced locally and sustainably, and the event is plastic-free. One thing is certain, with everything you try and buy here, you will receive a big thank you for choosing local and supporting small producers and their sustainable story, in the most direct way.
Admission is free, and all you need to bring is a good mood! In case of rain, the Little Picnic will be postponed to Saturday. The event is organised by Mali Plac, supported by the Zagreb Tourist Board. For more information, visit the official Facebook page, Facebook event, and Instagram profile.
