The St. Martin’s Day celebration in Maribor is the biggest public one-day celebration of St. Martin’s Day in Slovenia. On this occasion, even 20.000 visitors from Slovenia and abroad come to the Slovenian Styrian capital. The tribute to autumn and the celebration in the city square are accompanied by a rich cultural and entertainment offer and several wine and culinary events.

“Celebration of Autumn” Procession
The procession of wine queens, harvesters, folklorists, farm women, rafters and representatives of wine orders and associations walks around the city centre and joins the celebrations, bringing the autumn produce and food as a symbolic tribute to autumn.

Local Food and Wine Tastings
Join the people of Maribor and nearby towns and villages for the ceremonial blessing of the must. Celebrate in the company of famous musicians and musical ensembles. Try the food and the drinks offered on the stalls of local vinegrowers and winemakers, tourist farms and other restaurants.

In honour of St. Martin
The celebration of St. Martin, the saint who transforms must into wine, represents the symbolic end of all the winemakers’ efforts.
