Veli Joze Festival Motovun - Motovun, Croatia

Veli Joze Festival Motovun It is a revival of the legend of Istria’s giant named Veli Joze, a traditional Istrian folk tale that had long been forgotten. The festival has been initiated by Ozren Grbavcic and co-created together with the town of Motovun in 2012.

Once a year, for one weekend, ‘Veli Joze’ visits the medieval town of Motovun - an experience that transforms the pittoresque historic town centre in a world of myths and traditions, for old and young giant-lovers alike.

The highlight of Veli Joze Festival 2019 was certainly the performance of the famous Croatian comedian Ivan Saric.
