Palić Wine Festivities are organized to honour the tradition of celebrating Saint Urban, the patron of winemakers and winegrowers in the Subotica-Horgoš sands. During this occasion you can taste and buy excellent wines from the sand but also other wines from Vojvodina, during the whole day. The event takes place on the Grand Terrace of Palić.
The Fruit-Picking Days are a celebration of picking grapes and other fruits that become mature at early fall. A fair of handicrafts and a small market of by-products, honey, fruits and wine is organized on top of the entertainment and culinary programme. If you buy or leave a deposit for a wine glass at the stands of numerous winemakers, you can taste local wines. The event lasts two days.
In Ethnopolis, a city set up downtown, there is a whole-day fair of folk handicrafts, local food and children's corners and performances of folklore ensembles from all over the world in the evenings. The Wine Street is also a segment within the Festival, where ten or more local winemakers sell and present their wines to be tasted inside of small wooden sheds during the entire day.
The traditional gathering in the wine cellars in order to taste the young wine became a real event. European wineries organize this event on the third Thursday in November, however it takes place on the third Saturday in November in Palić, for practical reasons. At that time, you can taste and buy wines directly from the winemakers, at the great hall of the Grand Terrace.
Wine Marathon is an event which combines running, wine, music, gastronomy and diverse entertainment content. Wine Marathon is intended for anyone who wants to have fun and enjoy running or walking in nature, good wine, gastronomic specialties, music and socializing. Two runs, Wine Run and Enjoyment Run will provide participants with a unique experience of running through nature.
Run courses pass by the lakes, through the vineyards and wineries, by farms and through the beautiful plains of Vojvodina. Refreshment stops on the courses offer you not only water and fruit, but fine wine and local specialties. Run participants may show at the start line in their own original costumes, whereby the most imaginative costumes will eventually get valuable prizes.
The goal of these runs is not to finish the course in the shortest possible time, but to ensure that participants have a good time and fun. Visitors and participants may expect a diverse entertainment program and, of course, a lot of wine. Within the Tasting area visitors may enjoy wine tasting, specialties, but also participate in wine workshops.
Wine tasting will also be organized in local wineries, and those who like romance will enjoy wine tasting on a boat ride on Lake Palić. The entire event will be accompanied by a musical program, and those who still have some energy left after running may participate in fun runs in barrel rolling and running with a full glass of wine.
