The ceremonial lighting of the lights at Matija Gubec Square in Poreč on 6 December 2018 will mark the start of Advent Poreč - Avvento Parenzo. From the little ones to adults, all will feel the holiday warmth at Matija Gubec Square, in the magical Villa Polesini, City Library, and Poreč Open University until January 6, 2019. 

Families will fall in love with skating on the free ice-skating rink with basic equipment and ice-skating lessons included. The little ones will not be able to resist other free entertainment programmes and holiday surprises for children.


The Santa Claus House will make all children even happier and take them to the world of fantasy and joy while spending time with Father Christmas. The guest visit of the biggest live nativity scene from Sveti Lovreč to Advent in Poreč will make the Christmas spirit alive.
