The traditional "Belgrade Manifest" - a festival of events, destinations and tastings this year marks its tenth anniversary, and will be held at Kalemegdan from 17th to 19th May. Visitors can expect a rich program that they will be able to enjoy with their family and friends at the Belgrade Fortress and Kalemegdan Park for three days.

The tenth, jubilee festival of events, destinations and tastings will be held in the oldest part of the Kalemegdan park, where the "Fisherman" fountain is located, located on the approach from Knez Mihailova Street. The program of the festival will be held along the walking paths of the park, including the promenade with the most beautiful view of Novi Beograd (New Belgrade). This year, the festival is being held with the support of the City of Belgrade, municipality Stari grad and public company "Belgrade Fortress", as part of the "Family Days" event.

"Belgrade Manifest" is a unique family festival where interesting content for all generations will be offered during three days in six theme units.

The largest zone of the festival is "Aduti Srbije" (Assets of Serbia) where more than 30 municipalities from Serbia will present their cultural, historical and gastronomic wealth in an imaginative and creative way with a program presentation on the central festival stage. In the "Real world around us" zone, guests from the region will present the beauty of their countries, who will present their tourist offer as well as authentic national specialties in specially designed stands.

Ever since the first edition of the "Belgrade Manifest", the goal of the organizers has been to present numerous destinations and events to visitors in a unique and creative way at the beginning of the summer tourist season, but also to enable visitors to experience part of the atmosphere from the most interesting places they can visit during vacation.

The children's zone "Masta moze svasta" (Imagination can do anything) will be the most creative and cheerful this year, and in addition to the interesting scenographic decoration, there will also be numerous free interactive activities for the youngest, such as: theater plays, children's choirs, clowns, stilt walkers, costumed heroes from fairy tales, magicians and much more.

This year, the little ones will be able to ride horses in the park in a special zone called "Konji vrani" (Black horses), which is fully dedicated to the promotion of equestrian sports, the education of children who are interested in royal sports and, of course, socializing and getting to know these noble animals.

As part of the Manifest Bazaar, over 50 exhibitors from all over the country will be presented, and visitors will have the opportunity to see a variety of handicrafts, locally authentic gastronomic products from all over Serbia in one place, and to taste the homemade products of Serbian housewives.

A relaxation zone in the park is provided for visitors, so in the "Kalemegdan picnic zone" they will be able to relax and enjoy music, delicious burgers, homemade sausages, Italian cuisine, as well as sweets and a wide range of drinks.

This year too, special attention was paid to the disposal of used packaging, all with the aim of protecting the environment, reducing plastic waste and raising awareness of the importance of recycling. With the support of the Ball Packaging Europe company and in cooperation with the "Every can counts" project, there will be promoters on site with backpacks for disposing of used beverage cans, and several boxes for disposing of packaging will be installed. As aluminum packaging can be recycled 100%, an unlimited number of times with minimal losses, with this cooperation we want to set an example of a responsible attitude towards the planet and encourage visitors to the Belgrade Manifest to recycle.

The working hours of the festival are on Friday from 15:00 to 21:00, on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 21:00, and the entry for all visitors is free.
