Traditional Slovenian Evening is an event that supports over 30 different folklore associations across Slovenia. Children, adults and veteran performers – dancers, singers, musicians,…
We started with folklore events 10 years ago for two main reasons:
To offer our guests the chance to get to know Slovenian culture and who we are
To help the unprofitable associations to keep & preserve our culture
Our country has no professional state-supported folklore group to keep our cultural heritage alive for you, for us and for the generations to come. By attending our evening you help our friends finance and keep alive our past and our cultural wealth.
Why do folklore groups perform on “Traditional Slovenian evenings”?
FOLKLORE GROUP FROM MARIBOR
I had this »luck« when the board of our group decided that I will be one of the moderators at Traditional Slovenian Evening. At my first performance as a moderator and leader of our small army of dancers, I was quite nervous. My first group was small, around 20 guests from the USA. I have to say the group was very cooperative, funny, willing to work with us and all of us were in a very good mood. Maybe because we were so relaxed and they enjoyed good wine and food at the same time? We introduced them to 3 different dances from 3 different regions, as well as explained why we are dressed the way we are, and involved them in some games, like hats and dancing around the chairs in couples. Anyway, from that performance on, I have always been in the group that traveled to Ljubljana to perform for Židana marela. In general, my view is very positive; we meet a lot of people from all the parts of our world. Also the leadership of Židana marela is very positive and friendly, and we are happy to have them promote us and our country.
FOLKLORE GROUP FROM CENTRAL PART OF SLOVENIA
We always have such a good time when we are performing on Traditional Slovenian Evenings. Especially when we include guests in our games, after performing dances. I think that we are all enjoying together with guests. It’s so good to see that guests are having so much fun and have a good time with us. At the end of the performance we sometimes even take a picture together with them.
FOLKLORE GROUP FROM BLED
We are very proud to perform on these events. The organizer is a travel agency Židana Mare or Happy umbrella who has a very responsible approach to organizing these events. They strive to achieve a professional implementation and presentation of our ancestor’s folklore to their guests.
FOLKLORE GROUP FROM LJUBLJANA
I believe that a tourist, coming to Slovenia can’t see it and feel it all at once…. but Traditional Slovenian evening is a unique event where guests can feel the vibe of our nation in a lovely atmosphere of Ljubljana city center. Good wine, delicious food and live music are guaranteed! Since Ljubljana is also rather small (in comparison with other European capitals), everything is walking distance, most likely also your hotel! With our folklore dancers and musicians you can experience the traditional Slovenian music and dances, while enjoying your dinner with traditional food. What else would you wish for? So don’t miss out the opportunity to be a part of this evening!
