The Days of National Costumes and Clothing Heritage are considered to be the biggest ethnological festival in Slovenia priding itself on a more than 40-year tradition. The beginnings of the event date back into 1966 when Kamnik citizens organized the Day of National Costumes. In the first year already, a great number of educational societies and individuals, both from Kamnik and its surroundings, attended the event. The event has changed names quite a few times, so in 1986 Kamnik hosted the 16th Days of National Costumes, Folklore and Crafts, which later changed to Days of National Costumes and Clothing Heritage – a name that has been preserved until today, when the event had become widely renowned through its numerous content changes.

Pride of the city

For more than four decades, the festival has been attracting over 30,000 visitors with its programme, as well as media from Slovenia and abroad. The festival is the pride of the city, and the locals like to refer to it simply as “Costumes”.
