Porcijunkulovo:folklore festival in Čakovec
The largest festival in Međimurje

Porcijunkulovo is a traditional cultural and tourist event organized by the Croatian Town of Čakovec.  The centre of activity is the northeastern city of Čakovec in the Medjimurje region, about 1 hour drive from the Croatian capital Zagreb.The event itself is linked to the celebration of the church feast of "Our Lady of the angel - Porcijunkule", and through the years it has become the largest tourist manifestation in Međimurje.

Porcijunkulovo is the largest inter-estonian settlement that has grown into a top five-day event. This year, the jubilee fifty-year event is held.

Among the more attractive are the old crafts workshops and workshops that represent the customs of the Međimurje region. Some of the events also give a recognizable feature of the event: Oldtimer Encounters, Archery Tournament, Međimurje Children's Festival, presentation of well-known interim winemakers.

Apart from the fact that visitors  have the opportunity to take a walk around the well-known 'U-shaped umbrella', which has become a symbol of this event,  have the opportunity to go back to the past because an old Medimurje courtyard will be located in front of the Union Building.

It is important to note that this year there was a record number of exhibitors, 180 of them from all over Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary.
