Don't miss the most beautiful Advent in Istria!
This year enjoy an even more eventful programme, free ice skating, numerous free concerts, entertainment and cultural programmes and an abundant culinary offer.
The ceremony of lighting the Christmas lights at Matija Gubec Park in Poreč on 6 December 2019 will officially mark the beginning of the Advent Poreč – Avvento Parenzo event. Until 6 January 2020, children and adults will be kept warm by the holiday spirit in Matija Gubec Square, at the enchanting Villa Polesini and in the premises of the City Library and the Public Open University Poreč.
Families will be most delighted with the free ice skating, equipment rental and ice skating lessons, while the kids will not be able to resist the other free children's programmes and holiday surprises. Santa Claus' House will put a smile on the face of children as they enter a world of fantasy, joy and companionship with Santa Claus. The Christmas spirit will come to life with a guest portrayal of a Live Nativity from Sveti Lovreč at Advent Poreč.
During the event, you can enjoy fantastic free concert performances at Matija Gubec Park by renowned Croatian artists, such as Neno Belan & Fiumens, Opća Opasnost, Soul Fingers with Christmas Special Programme, Mia Dimšić, Jovanotti Tribute Band Gustafi and The Night Express and many others.
During the Christmas market, the fragrances and flavours of Advent will spread from the holiday-themed booths where you will be able to buy Advent souvenirs
