Poreč Open Air – Festival of life

The Festival programs can be divided into 4 categories: Street Performance, Music Nights, Cinema and Theatre and Special events.

Street performance will offer a range of events so everyone can find something they enjoy. Circus in the City on Mondays will turn the entire city into a giant open-air circus. The streets will be teeming with jugglers, stilt walkers, acrobats and fire-eaters and the entire event will culminate in a final performance on the summer stage on the Seafront.

Every Thursday, as part of the Princess Ball program, you can enter into a fairy-tale world of famous animated characters and dance at the ball with the “real” princess and prince. This year, the music evenings program is expanded to include hidden and forgotten city areas for a more intimate ambience. This is how, as well as the current locations, several city squares will come to life with music.

The music will follow you through the Old City Centre, it will greet you behind each and every corner and in all the squares of Poreč, so that the entire city can live and dance to the same rhythm.

As part of the Cinema and Theatre program, all cinemagoers will find something to their liking and enjoy the Open Air Cinema program offering films in a range of genres.

Sundays are reserved for the interactive, educational and entertainment program Istria InSpirit – a program for the whole family that displays all the elemental parts of Istria and Poreština, from myths and legends to gastronomy. There are also special events in store.

Starting directly after the Festival opening concert, with Vatra & Pavel, week after week, during July and August, you will be entertained by the Queen tribute band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band, U2 tribute band, and Coldplay tribute band!

The end of August is reserved for MTV Summerblast, the best party for the end of the summer.

Mid-September offers a gastronomical event, the Tunalicious Street Food Festival, which gathers all lovers of tuna fish specialities and offers great fun before the festival ends with the one of the greatest Croatian music performer, Gibonni!

Do not miss out on summer events that you will never forget!

See you in Poreč!
