It really doesn’t get much more family-friendly than this wonderful event. First held all the way back in 1966, the National Costumes and Clothing Heritage Festival takes places in the centre of Kamnik. Each year, on the second weekend of September, the costumes take centre stage, showcasing the colourful wares worn by people through the centuries. All regions of the country are featured, as well the traditional attire of other nations. Dress makes up quite a big part of a nation's heritage, and this festival goes all out in order to pay its respects to this. Musical entertainment is provided by a variety of folk bands, brass ensembles and vocal groups, with folk dancing groups providing some eye-catching distractions. The Costume Festival is a colourful fun-packed weekend of joy for all ages. The Guardian rated it as one of the top 20 best traditional festivals in Europe. This year's event takes place between 5th - 9th September. The full programme will be here available soon.
