The festival of legends, myths and stories



…to provide an innovative festival which connects culture, locals and tourists.


The aim of this mystical festival is to introduce domestic and foreign visitors with a wealth of Croatian tangible and intangible heritage.


Over the past two years there were more than 15,000 visitors at the LegendFest. In addition, the creation of the accompanying festival materials and events, in particular the LegendExpo and LegendArt, also speak of the enormous success of the festival.

    LegendFest is a versatile platform where one can meet many creative people through music, dance, writing, fairy tales, stories, lectures, nature, imagination, pictures... The festival is here to leave the lasting impression on the kids and adults alike. I must admit that my favourite one is held in Pićan. It is always unpredictable and one should be ready to improvise along the way. It's nice to have been the part of this beautiful event on several occasions and I wish the creative team of the LegendFest all the best in the future.

    How to describe LegendFest in one word? Magical! The festival atmosphere was airy, fairy, exciting. A well designed and organized event which offered an array of wonderful workshops and interactions. I'm so glad and very proud that my students participated in LegendArt through which they were able to exhibit their literary and artistic works. Their art portrayed a message that life can be a fairy tale!

    My LegendFest experience was excellent. I rode horses and saw frogs. I saw my friends and a teacher there. We ate all sorts of nice things. LegendFest was fabulous and fairy-tale like. I saw fairies and other magical creatures. I can not wait to visit LegendFest again.
