The festival includes engaging culinary workshops dedicated to the different ways of healthy food preparation, as well as helpful and informative lectures.

One of the most anticipated events is the Dubrovnik Shakespeare Festival, which will be held in the period between the end of April and May 2020. The festival revolves not only around Shakespeare’s work but also popularizes contemporary theatre and arts.
The Aklapela festival
The unique atmosphere of the Old Town is also the perfect setting for the Aklapela festival, dedicated to the traditional Croatian “klapa” singing. The performances are quite emotional and inspiring because they have to express the beauty of the lyrics and melody without the help of a musical accompaniment. The festival will take place between 5th and 7th April 2020, and visitors will have the chance to listen to some of the best vocal groups from the region of Dubrovnik and other parts of the country as well.
