Beer and Flowers Festival
The Beer and Flowers Festival, of which the main sponsor is still Pivovarna Laško, has become in forty seven years the most attended tourist-entertainment and cultural event in Slovenia, attracting to the small town of Laško with just 5000 residents more than 120,000 visitors.
In the old town centre and on the Trubar Embankment along the Savinja river, a number of smaller and larger inns come to life. Cultural and entertainment events take place on the main event venues and several smaller outdoor venues and under tents. Visitors can enjoy concerts of artists of different musical genres, from the most famous Slovenian folk bands and singers all the way to pop and rock.
The climax of the event is the Saturday music programme, and the introduction into the playful night is announced by a water symphony and magnificent fireworks with music in the background, which each year attract over 60,000 visitors to Laško, merrymaking until the early hours.
The event's programme is enriched by numerous exhibitions, of which the most interesting are the flower exhibition, the art exhibition and the presentation of old customs and the delicacies of local cuisine by the Ethno committee Možnar.
Sunday mornings are taken by the already traditional peasant wedding with old ways and customs, whereas in the afternoon, the Festival concludes with a parade in the streets of Laško, which is, in terms of the extent of the display of flowers and old customs, the most beautiful in Slovenia.
