Wild plant Festival

Did you know that in the little medieval village of Kršan, there is a Wild Plants Festival every year?That's right, a Wild Plants Festival. Istria, our biggest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, is full of plants that grow naturally.
Plants have always been used by the local people for food, medicine or cosmetics. With this event we want to bring up the importance of recognizing, picking and using wild plants in the everyday life.
Because tradition must not be forgotten.

What can you see, hear and experience at the Festival?
You can see exhibitors with natural products and cooks introducing us to food made of plants. Expert lecturers will reveal in their workshops the secrets to making natural cosmetics, teas, tinctures, oils, perfumes and, of course, cooking a meal with the weeds.

Who is the Festival intended for?
For all the people who want to experience two days in the nature, learn something new or just relax from the busy everyday life.

We are expecting you in Kršan!
