The events will be enriched by performances and children's groups, ex-tempore art and street musicians.

Dobrovo will be dedicated to eno-gastronomy. Jams, products from olive oil, fruits, meats, spirits, liqueurs and of course Brda wine will adorn many stand. At the Castle Dobrovo you will admire local chefs during their live cooking shows!

On Sunday at 16:30 you should not miss the traditional parade, which will be dedicated to the 50th anniversary. What important events marked our municipality and of course the Cherry Festival during the 50-year history, who were the girls who have earned the title of Queen of cherries and Queen of Ribolla, who has always stood in the forefront of traditional parades? All this and more awaits us in the traditional parade on Sunday 12.6. at 16:30.
