Špancirfest@ Varaždin, Croatia
Aug 17 – Aug 26 all-day


For twenty years, at the end of August, the historic city core of Varaždin is transformed into the largest stage in Croatia. During the ten days of Spancirfest, the streets, squares, palaces, parks, gardens, and courtyards of historic Varaždin become stages, theatres, restaurants, bars, clubs, classrooms, and shops at the largest, most popular and most diverse Croatian festival. Over the past twenty years, many have asked themselves what exactly is Špancirfest. The most accurate answer would be “What isn’t it?”

For, Špancirfest is both a street and a music festival. It is a festival of people who like taking walks, as well as those who like to party, it is a festival of hedonism, an art festival, a festival of tradition, and a festival of contemporary creative production. A festival where you can truly relax or completely burn out. It is precisely this creative ambiguity, this immeasurable diversity and variability merged with the beautiful historical core of the city of Varaždin what makes Špancirfest so successful, popular, great and unique.

Every year, Špancirfest offers its visitors a rich concert programme, the best European and world street performers, acrobats and entertainers, an innovative creative programme consisting of workshops, studios and open-air exhibitions honouring the long and important tradition of craftsmanship in Varaždin. Špancirfest brings to the streets and squares of Varaždin a luxurious and diverse, even cosmopolitan culinary offer, theatre performances, a wide range of children’s attractions, and the unparalleled spirit of connection between the festival, the city and the thousands of visitors who enjoy everything this unique festival has to offer each day, which is why they visit it year after year.
