Basic information

Over the last weekend in May every year, the whole of Velika is taken over by folklore with the international folklore festival Preserve Homeland Traditions, held since 1990, where traditional clubs and folk groups from Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Hungary and Romania come together. Participants spend several days living with the inhabitants of Velika, thanks to their friendship and hospitality. During the programme, participants parade through the town before performing on stage. In the Folklore festival, guests join in the Longest Table, an event at a kilometer-long table to enjoy a variety of traditional dishes from Croatia and nearby countries, with a selection of traditional drinks.
