Traditional Events


Flower Fair (Cvetlični sejem)
All things flowers brought, put on show, debated about and of course sold at Velenje's flower fair, plus there are kids activities like painting.


Tourist Week
This summertime event allows the various municipalities of the area come together in its main town, conduct a round-table on tourism, do some recreation cycling and oversee a busy program of stalls and special offers at numerous public houses and restaurants, including a special 'open door' day at the 'Gril Homestead (Grilova domačija).


Jump over the hide
First of all, a reveille rouses folk to the miner's day celebrations, to see the parade and later the young miners' symbolic leap into a coal-black slate.


“Starotrški dan v Šaleku”
The old borough market day is not a thing of the past in Velenje, at least in its old form, but is revived every year, calling all from the Šalek valley to Šalek square (Trg v Šaleku) in Velenje for a day of artisans and craftsmen hawking their wares.

Family weekend at Tuševo Tourist Farm
Organised by the local tourist board of Vinska Gora, this is a weekend of family fun at the wonderfully rural farmhouse of a young family of five, not far from Velenje. A must if you've never been to a tourist farm.


Sunday at the Mill
In its sixth year already, the sunday festival at a traditional mill offers visitors a rich cultural program of stalls with farm produce, music, dancing, and a warming of the soul, not to mention the spirits.


Autumn Fair
The seasonal fair with the warmest colours features the customary stalls of diverse local offerings, and also workshops for kids, a goulash cooking competition (and no doubt tasting), art workshops and open air exhibitions.


Merry December Fair
The whole of December is merry in Slovenia, and a festive fair comes to Velenje one Saturday morning that month, with stalls of local treats, gifts and a lively program. Mulled wine is a must.
