International festival dedicated to photography and photographers, which is basically an ex-tempore contest (the works created while the manifestation is being held), and during the years it has been gaining new contents. Initially, the manifestation was held only in Novigrad, but it has spread to other locations in Istria visited by the Ex Tempore participants, who, at specific locations, realise some of their thematic photo sessions, supported by costumed actors and extras (Kringa - vampires, Vrsar - Casanova, Mirna Valley - Istrian giants, etc.). The festival ends with a photo exhibition and the best authors are awarded by the jury and the audience.

Istria Granfondo, great autumn marathon starting and ending in coastal Istrian towns of Umag and Novigrad is an opportunity for a fun weekend of sports and recreation. Granfondo has recently become a very popular road cycling event. The race implies a spontaneous ride of many participants, ranging from contestants in excellent shape to families and casual recreational cyclists.
International marathon Istria Granfondo will take place on Saturday and Sunday, 4-5 October 2014, offering a choice of several routes. The Saturday ride, with start and finish lines in Novigrad, is suitable for families with children, while the Sunday program also includes stunts!
Grozni Grožnjan is the name of a demanding enduro race hosted by Grožnjan, a popular town of artists. This race is scored for the SloEnduro Cup as well as the Croatian State Championships.
The enduro discipline is rather new in the biking world. There are two different schools of this sport stemming from the USA and France. Races consist of 4 to 5 cross-country sections, which time is measured only in downhill cycling. As the discipline is as dynamic and exciting for the competitors as for the audience, racing tracks are set as close to each other as possible to provide spectators with the maximum visibility.
Enduro grozni takes place on the hills surrounding Grožnjan and St.Juraj as well as along several overpasses crossing the Parenzana route, a former narrow-gauge track. Excellent fun is guaranteed for all participants. Picturesque Grožnjan will ensure pleasantly spent time even to those who did not come for bike riding.

Lasting an entire month, the Sole Fish Days are not celebrated out in the open with music and many guests. Instead, this event takes place in the many restaurants and wine cellars of Umag, Novigrad, Buje and Brtonigla. Here you will find three-course meals based on sole, served with quality wine and olive oil from the region.
The sole has thus become an inspiration, encouraging cooks to try out new creations and combinations. Chefs reach for the stars and let their imagination run wild, raising the gastronomic experience to new levels - all in the name of this noble fish, characteristic of the north-western part of the Istrian peninsula.
