CRNA OVCA INVITES YOU TO A THREE-DAY FESTIVAL OF INDIVIDUALISM
The sun is shining and filling you with vitamin D, the sea is murmuring in the background, and the enticing fragrance of the island flora is wafting in the air… together with the scent of roast lamb!
After the success of last year’s festival, which won the national Simply the Best! annual award in the category of wine & food events in 2019, Crna Ovca returns to the streets of Baška and brings loads of fun and a programme that connects local history, traditional heritage and contemporary events. Everybody who has been visiting Baška in mid-May for many years to attend this wide-ranging music, sports and artistic weekend will agree that the festival is getting better all the time and has exceeded everything that we’ve seen so far.
The musical part of this year’s programme includes performances by well-known artists such as the singer Jura Stublić and the Hladno Pivo band, as well as several totally different, vibrant Croatian bands.
During the festival, Baška will be the meeting point not only of guests in search of good music and great fun in the open air, but also of gourmets who love local cuisine, especially lamb that will be on offer in all local restaurants and street stands where this speciality will be offered in the form of handy street food.
The central sporting event during Crna Ovca is the Corinthia Cup sailing regatta and its Jure Vukasović Memorial. The festival will also include a varied programme for the youngest visitors, such as ceramic workshops and wool felting, presentations of sheep shearing, but also a bocce tournament. There will also be a new edition of the Crni Jancić football tournament for the youngest visitors.
Visitors interested in a healthy and active lifestyle can join the guided Shepherd’s Pageant hiking tour that will acquaint them with local sites of interest, and the popular Crna Ovca yoga exercises. Due to the great number of visitors last year and their positive reactions, this year’s Crna Ovca will bring the best of the funniest: comedians from the LAJNAP theatre group that guarantee loads of fun and laughter.
Come again this spring and have a taste of this most delicious of Kvarner islands.
