Calendar of events in Izola


There's a variety of cultural, sports and culinary events that will entertain both the locals and many visitors of our town.


We entered the season of culinary campaigns in June, with Days of local Mussels. By the end of summer, we will be able to enjoy cod, which will be the main culinary treat at the second Pier of tastes, taking place on September 4th. The event is a prelude to Days of Cod, where local restaurateurs offer menus with cod. Days of Cod will take place between the 10th and 26th of September. Following the same example, there will be another event at the pier on October 2nd, announcing the upcoming Days of Istrian Bobiči (corn minestrone). The season of culinary events will be concluded on the first Saturday in November when we will meet at this year’s last Pier of tastes. You will then enjoy Days of Kingdom of Fish from 12th until 28th November. 

You can buy home-grown fruit, vegetables, and other local products at the seasonal market Ruba sz moje njive (Stuff from my field) every Wednesday and Saturday until the end of September.

Sports enthusiasts will test their skills in cycling, running, and swimming on September 19th at I feel Slovenia Ironman 70.3. Slovenian Istria. There will also be a sports program for children. The recreational cycling event Istrian Cycling Marathon will offer a great opportunity to join other cycling enthusiasts and ride along idyllic routes in Slovenian Istria on 2nd and 3d October. 

Smaller events for your soul 

Summer is marked by many smaller events happening in the old town center and the popular concert venue Arrigoni. The traditional Olives, wine, and fish festival won’t be missing either.
