New events are added to the festival’s program every year, however, several traditions remain unchanged, such as baking, milking and eating contests, world’s most delicious bread dessert record, straw sculptures and Winnie the Pooh sticks championship.

The festival will also feature a tetra pack regatta, in which ships made only from empty tetra packs will compete for the award of fastest, most spectacular and biggest ships.

To promote healthy lifestyle, no alcoholic beverages will be sold during the festival, thus proving that a joyful atmosphere does not necessarily require strong drinks.
