Today's Crikvenica wants to attract the attention of new generations to the importance of this tradition. One small way in which the town pays tribute to fishing, once the most important activity in the area to which Crikvenica owes its development and very survival, is Fishermen's Week, a festival that has been going on since 1966. It is also a way to acknowledge the persistence and endurance of our fishermen ancestors and to thank them for their contribution in creating the town's identity. One of the oldest events in the area, Fishermen's Week takes place every year at the end of August. Over time, the festival included more and more programmes and events, mostly connected to the sea. Fishermen's Week includes concerts, performances of theatrical and folklore ensemble, exhibitions, painting workshops, sporting competitions and other activities. Of particular interest are the various original gastronomic programmes in which local people prepare traditional fish dishes for their visitors. Then at midnight of the last day, a fireworks marks the end of the festival and the arrival of autumn's quieter days.
