Days of National Costumes and Clothing Heritage
6 September 2018 – 9 September 2018
The biggest ethnological festival in Slovenia attracts more than 30,000 visitors every year.
Every September, tradition joins forces with ethnography, culture and entertainment. The central event brings together more than two thousand fans and connoisseurs of groupspecific costumes, while the programme also includes an offer of traditional Kamnik dishes.
The Days of National Costumes and Clothing Heritage are considered to be the biggest ethnological festival in Slovenia, priding itself on a more than 40-year tradition, with the 47th event taking place this year. The beginnings of the event date back to 1966 when Kamnik citizens organized the Day of National Costumes. Already in its first year, a great number of educational societies and individuals, both from Kamnik and its surroundings, attended the event. The event has changed names quite a few times; thus in 1986, Kamnik hosted the 16th Days of National Costumes, Folklore and Crafts, which was later changed to Days of National Costumes and Clothing Heritage – a name that has been preserved to this day, with the event becoming widely renowned through its numerous content changes.
Every year the festival’s programme attracts over 30,000 visitors, as well as media from Slovenia and abroad. The festival is the pride of the town, and the locals like to refer to it simply as “Costumes”.
