The undoubted peculiarity of Croatian culture and a kind of trademark of Šibenik is the International Children's Festival.  During June until July th, Šibenik  becomes a city of children  for the 63rd time, and celebrates children's imagination and creativity.

This year, too, Šibenik will host the children of the world, giving its streets to children's creativity and remind all its visitors how precious the world of children's play, joy and goodness is. During the festival days, Šibenik is one big open stage, a place of exciting meeting of poets and children. In numerous artistic and creative forms on the city streets and squares meet the whole world, representatives of cultures from all continents.

The festival has three basic programmes: a festival of domestic and international children’s ensembles, the workshop programme directly and publicly involving children in the act of creation, and the educational part where a symposium addresses issues such as aesthetic education of children. To those who never forget their playful side and even more so to those who have completely forgotten it, Šibenik should be an inevitable destination.

The concept and humanitarian goals of the Festival have the full support of UNICEF and UNESCO and the constant patronage of the President of the Republic of Croatia.

The grand opening is on the summer stage between the Cathedral of St. Jakov and the City Hall and will be in the sign of the festival choir Zdravo Maleni. The collage program is called Meadow from a Dream, with which the Šibenik Children's Festival wants to pay tribute to the prominent Croatian composer, conductor, producer and arranger Alfi Kabilj and his creativity for children. The festival will be closed by a local production with the play Dražen. It is a piece dedicated to Šibenik's basketball Mozart, Dražen Petrović. In addition to the rich festival program, this year's special attraction is the world attraction - the Vietnamese water puppet theater.

We are counting down the days until the start of a unique cultural event with an international reputation that has been held for six decades in beautiful Šibenik.
