Kunigunda - festival of youth cultures
Every last week in August, the Velenje Castle witch Kunigunda comes back to life. The summer Kunigunda festival of youth cultures takes place on Velenje's streets and public surfaces. It brings together the artistic efforts of the contributors over a week of shows, learning, fun and admiration. Concerts of various musical genres (including foreign groups), theatre and street shows are rounded-off by artistic and creative workshops (such as creating musical instruments from junk), graffiti, musical improvisation, a bazaar (of food and crafts), as well as sports events (e.g. tightroping, capoeira). The only condition for visiting the festival is to leave any prejudices at home.
