23.-26. August 2017: Days of Poetry and Wine, Ptuj

Days od Poetry and Wine, the biggest international poetry festival in Slovenia, will take place for the 21st time in 2017. The festival will host as many guest poets, among which two guests of honour will receive special attention: Slovene poet Andrej Brvar and Chilean poet Raúl Zurita.

The festival which will focus on contemporary Hungarian poetry this year, will beginn with the traditional Evenings before Days on 22nd August on eight different locations in Slovenia and Austria and continue with dense festival happening between 23rd and 26th August in Ptuj. Next to irreplacable grand evening poetry readings and concerts, charming private readings, wine tastings, wine workshop, art exhibitions, round tables, children's workshops and many other events for visitors of all ages and interests we are also preparing a real poetry promenade. The grand poetry promenade, which will occupy the streets of Ptuj on the last festival day, 26th August, will bring poetry, music and dance to the streets and brighten the city center with Saturday's matinee atmosphere.

Long live poetry and wine!
