Basic information

The first and largest medieval summer fair in Croatia, Rabska fjera is based on tradition started 21st of July 1364, when the City Council of Rab decided to celebrate and honor King Louis the Great who freed them from the Venetian rule, as well as holiday honoring St. Christophor, patron saint of the town of Rab. Fjera used to last for 14 days celebrate and praise the saints powers that supposedly saved the town from destruction. The entire island goes back in time during those days. Small artisan stores move to the streets, so you can have your belt or a perfumed pomade made infront of your eyes, while your hair is being braided with tiny flowers into a typical do from the medeival times. Freshly fried šulčići are served and at the beach an entire fishermen village is built altogether with the traditional tools, machines and even toys for children. Air is filled with the song and music, while tuna, fritule, cheese and wine are served to passers by.

Srednjovjekovni ljetni festival - Razvojni plan turizma Grada Raba daje veliku važnost kulturno povijesnoj baštini Raba, a Rabska fjera kao kulturna manifestacija u svojoj biti veliča cjelokupnu kulturno povijesnu baštinu. Glavni ciljevi održavanja „Rabske fjere“ su: promicanje rapskog turizma uopće, u svim njegovim oblicima i vidovima, a naročito promocija originalnog rapskog turističkog proizvoda i Raba kao nezaobilaznog turističkog odredišta. Fjeru čini 700 kostimiranih sudionika. U tri dana Fjeru posjeti oko 30000 posjetitelja, domaćih i stranih turista. Značaj, učinak i smisao Fjere: „…. Fjera je, naprotiv, upravo dostojanstvena svečanost, kao što je bila inaugurirana prije šest i pol stoljeća. I nije isprazna sjajna parada, nego doista izraz želje da se , makar i samo intuicijom, prodre u tminu prošlih vjekova gdje su još prepoznatljive sjene naših predaka; da se sagledaju vlastiti korijeni, da se potvrdi i učvrsti svoj identitet. Da se ispremreženi i oslobođeni, sputani sofisticiranim suvremenim tehnologijama, podsjetimo na ljepotu rada ruku i vještinu prstiju, na žuljeve umjesto rukavica, na sudbinsku povezanost sa prirodom, sa zemljom i morem; na duhovno i materijalno stvaralaštvo naših starih, njihovu inokosnu kreativnost, koju vrijeme ekipnog rada, tekućih vrpca i strojne konfekcije pomalo zaboravlja.“ Rabska fjera, dobila je nagradu za kulturno događanje u akciji „Doživi Hrvatsku - Experience Croatia“ – dodjela oznake kvalitete u kulturnom turizmu. Priznanje je dobila 20. listopada 2011. na Danima hrvatskog turizma u Šibeniku, hotelskom naselju Solaris.
