The ceremonial lighting of the lights at Matija Gubec Square in Poreč on 6 December 2017 will mark the start of Advent Poreč - Avvento Parenzo. From the little ones to adults, all will feel the holiday warmth at Matija Gubec Square, in the magical Villa Polesini, City Library, and Poreč Open University until January 7, 2018.
Families will fall in love with skating on the free ice-skating rink with basic equipment and ice-skating lessons included. The little ones will not be able to resist other free entertainment programmes and holiday surprises for children.
The novelty of this year's event is the Santa Claus House which will make all children even happier and take them to the world of fantasy and joy while spending time with Father Christmas, Mrs. Claus, and their faithful elfs. The guest visit of the biggest live nativity scene from Sveti Lovreč to Advent in Poreč will make the Christmas spirit alive.
During the event at Matija Gubec Park, you will be able to enjoy excellent free concerts by famous Croatian performers, such as Vatra, Gustafi, Songkillers, Meritas and Jelana Radan, Marijan Ban i Diktatori, Parni Valjak, Night Express, Cirkus and many others.
For the full family Advent experience in the old town centre pedestrian zone, there is only one rule – leave your car at the large town parking lot and hop onto our Christmas train, which will take you straight to the Poreč Advent celebration.
During the Christmas Fair, the Advent scents and flavours will spread from the holiday stands embellished with ornate decorations selling Christmas souvenirs.
