The traditional folklore festival that brings together folklore groups from Dalmatia and other parts of Croatia and the region is taking place in the 2nd half of May, like in the last 30 years, organized by KUD Metković. Tourists and visitors to te city can enjoy the festivities that are scheduled to run through several days, and bring forth the rich cultural heritage and customs that their land holds. It is a special event for visitors and of special worth is the parade through town accompanied by song and dance that gives life to customs that are slowly being forgotten. Through professional gatherings that are a vital part of this event there is an added emphasis on the preservation of cultural heritage and customs.
