During that festival Bacchus, who is the God of Wine and Grapevine, takes over control of the city. Whole Zielona Gora becomes one huge scene where people drink a lot of wine and enjoy themselves. Each year residents and tourists are provided with a host of different attractions, e.g. concerts, outdoor events, sports competitions, collection fair, antique fair, street parade and many more.
An inseparable element of Wine Festival is predominantly the Wine Festival Fair (8-16 September, 2018), during which 500 tradesmen, artists, craftsmen and collectors set up their stands in the city centre.
