In addition to the two main stages, a children’s stage has been opened, where, in addition to children’s performances, workshops on children’s rights, origami and good behavior are held. The festival is held on the last weekend in August, and Ivanjica becomes one big scenography where hundreds of young people dressed in beautiful toilets from Nusic’s time walk along the promenade. A varied and excellent program takes place throughout the town, and every corner has been turned into a stage, cafes are open without a hitch, and you can enjoy the music of numerous tamburitza orchestras. Visitors can see many exhibitions, theater performances, fashion shows, sports events, and tribunes on the topic of education have been organized.

Milan Milosavljević, actor of the theater on Terazije), which means a three-day reign of fun, laughter and good mood.
