Festivals in Montenegro

Hello everyone,

What are the main festivals in Montenegro? Are there art, food, music, film, or other festivals expats can attend and participate in?

When do the festivals take place? How long does each festival usually last?

What activities go on during the festival? Is it necessary to buy tickets?

Are there any other events that take place in Montenegro that shouldn't be missed?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


There are many Festivals all over the Montenegro during the whole year. Many music Festivals, Art, Film and Food. Let me tell you about some of them. In my hometown Herceg Novi, the most famous Festival is so called Praznik mimoze - feast of mimosa. Mimosa is the best known flower in my town and that Festival goes in February from 1969. It included free food and drink ( fish, wine and beer ), maskenbal, exhibition of flowers. Similar are in Kotor and Tivat.
