The Festival Lent is the only festival with its own verb!

The story of the Lent Festival is the story of evenings that smell like summer and invite you to socialize, to get out, under the starry sky, among colourful lights, sounds, rhythms. 

To the Drava river, which reflects the fantastic imagery of dreams, to the stands with local delicacies, to the squares where you meet your acquaintances, to the streets with rivers of visitors from all over the world. To the city that breathes, pulsates, lives!

The Lent Festival is the largest Slovenian open-air festival and one of the largest in Europe.

For more than a quarter of a century, at the beginning of summer, Maribor has been transformed into a gigantic stage and a lively junction of artistic expressions, cultures and languages from around the world. Every year it welcomes visitors from all over the world and almost every fourth Slovene has visited it at least once.
