Traditional events

Since medieval fair tradition, various events have been considered something special for the residents of Slovenj Gradec and the Mislinja Valley.

Unlike many Slovenian towns and cities, Slovenj Gradec has many visitors, whether it is a cultural or sports event, fairs or any other events. Slovenj Gradec is often the scene of the most demanding international art exhibitions, meetings of professional music artists, scientific symposiums and other events.

The program of events is availible here.
