International Folklore Festival Beltinci


The international folklore festival in Beltinci has a long tradition. It was one of the first ones on the soil of today's Slovenia, and in the area of Yugoslavia at the time. In the years since its inception, it has developed into a unique four-day event that serves originality above all: with music whose popularity cannot be disputed, with dance that is still based on tradition and an offer of homeliness that makes visitors love to return to the shelter of the mighty oaks in the castle of Beltinci Park.

The festival's annual motto is still SONG AND DANCE UNITE NATIONS. According to experts in the field of folklore, it is one of the few events that has preserved its identity and has not succumbed to the trend of commercialization. Due to the familiarity, the warm welcome and the large audience, the festival also presents visiting groups with an unforgettable experience. The association has been organizing it since its foundation in 1969. It grew out of the activities of the FOLKLORE GROUP, which has been operating for more than 85 years and received the EUROPEAN AWARD FOR ORIGINALITY in 1985. At the same time, the group is the recipient of MAROLT'S PLAQUE and - the dancers are particularly proud of this - the KUD Beltinci Folklore Group was awarded years ago by the President of the Republic of Slovenia, dr. Danilo Türk, with the ORDER OF MERIT.

Throughout the years of the festival, visitors could learn about the cultural wealth of many nations from more than 30 countries, including all regions in Slovenia. We are also happy that around 10,000 visitors see the festival every year, who can enjoy dance, songs, folk jokes and customs, as well as cuisine, from Thursday to Sunday.

We want it to stay that way, so we always try to provide visitors with the highest quality and most varied program.
