Pag: 10th International Lace Festival from 20th to 23rd of June

Lauren Simmonds

It’s difficult to claim one Croatian island to be more interesting than another, and it’s even more difficult to make such claims about a country with more than 1,000 islands to its name. However, Pag is certainly an extremely unusual island.

If you’ve ever spent any time there, when compared to other Croatian islands which are typically thick with green Mediterranean vegetation and rich with life, you’ll know that this almost entirely naked, Mars like structure in the Adriatic sea is in a league of its own. A paradise for photographers as well as tourists, Pag has a long and rich history as well as an incredibly bizarre landscape.

Organised by the Tourist Board of Pag and the Society of Pag lace makers “Frane Budak”, from the 20th to the 23rd of June 2019, the tenth International Lace Festival will take place in the town of Pag. This is a manifestation which showcases part of this interesting Croatian island’s rich history.

As Morski writes on the 17th of June, 2019, this year, the lace festival will be held under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, sponsored by the Croatian Ministry of Culture, Zadar County, and with the welcome additional sponsorship of Erste Bank. The festival’s organisers have prepared a rich, interesting and educational program for all visitors.

During the three days of the festival, there will be exhibitions of Pag lace, lace workshops, a fashioh snow, performances, and an interesting historical exhibition on how people once lived on Pag, among other things. Klapa Ragusa and Klapa Kampanel will also perform their traditional music for all visitors.

At the Pag festival, more specifically the ground floor of the Rector’s Palace at Petar Krešimir Square, you can see the exhibitions of the participating countries of the festival and numerous works from Germany, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Hungary, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Slovenia, and of course Croatia.
