  • Rabac Open Air - Festival of Life

    08.06.2017 - 31.08.2017


    Rabac will be transformed into a huge open-air stage from June 8th to August 31st. A diverse programme, great music and urban beats, cinema and theatre, special events and concerts will enhance the summer experience and create unforgettable moments for all visitors.

    The festival’s motto is the celebration of life, the beauty of life and the little moments that come with it - and what better time than summer to do exactly that?

    The festival programme comprises four different categories: Street Performance, Street Music, Cinema and Theatre and Special Events.

    Numerous street performances will take place during the festival so that everyone can find something they enjoy. Circus in the City on Mondays will turn the entire city into a giant open-air circus. The streets will be teeming with jugglers, stilt walkers, acrobats and fire-eaters and the entire event will culminate in a final performance on the walkway by the lighthouse below the Valamar Sanfior Hotel. Enter a magical world inhabited by famous cartoon characters every Sunday and dance with a “real“ prince or princess at the Princess Ball.

    The Cinema & Theatre programme will undoubtedly please all cinephiles since it offers an array of different genres. The edutainment programme Istra InSpirit is scheduled for Saturdays and provides entertainment for the entire family by showcasing all the specific features of both Rabac and Labin, ranging from myths and legends to cuisine.

    Don’t miss out on an unforgettable summer experience!
