29th Pippi Longstocking Festival
When: 23–29 September 2018
More than 100,000 families visit the Pippi Longstocking Festival in Velenje over the course of its seven days. With 28 years of tradition behind it, the event is an unforgettable experience. Children immerse themselves in fantastic adventures while older visitors reawaken the child in themselves. The theme of this year's festival is the marvellous Animal Kingdom. Through creative and educational play, visitors will learn about the links between biology, ecology and ethics, and also discover whether elephants can really hear clouds, how long a giraffe's tongue is and whether crocodiles yawn, along with other mysteries of the animal world.
