497th Krk Fair – Lovrečeva 2021

497th Krk Fair – Lovrečeva 2021

The Krk Fair, organised by the Krk Town Tourist Board, the town of Krk and various associations and partners, has always attracted many visitors. The event’s goal has not changed much over the course of time: it gathers people and offers traditional products and craftwork, presenting local producers and the impressive cultural heritage of the Krk island and town.

This year’s event has been organised despite the extraordinary circumstances, in an effort to nourish the tradition of the oldest manifestation in Croatia’s part of the Adriatic and to give visitors an exceptional, first-hand experience of the destination. With the safety of participants and visitors being the priority, the programme has been conceptualised in a way to enable the visitors to experience the medieval and Renaissance Krk and its tradition and culture while taking a walk through the town.

The programme on Kamplin Square will offer its visitors a vivid insight into Krk in the Frankopans era. Krk’s history will be recreated by performers impersonating the famous Frankopan Counts of Krk, members of the Kaštel Historical Association and The Order of the Silver Knights, actors from the Frankopan Acting Studio and members of the Maura Kal Archery Club.

The event will feature exhibitions of medieval knights’ equipment, short plays and performance shows, knight tournaments, workshops for children, and presentations of knightly skills. Given the current situation, the opening ceremony will be symbolical only and will not include music performances.

Kamplin Square and St Quirinus' Square will be hosting educational workshops for children, while the central event – the fair of authentic traditional and products made by small producers and family farms from Krk and the rest of Croatia – will be held on five locations.

Folklore ensembles, brass band and local multipart signing groups (klapa) will take care of entertainment. The performances will take place in the evenings, on several locations – town's waterfront, Kamplin Square and Krušija Square.
