Not in Split? Advent in Kastela Announces Packed Winter Program

By 26 November 2019

November 26, 2019 - Can't make it to Split? Don't fret, Advent in Kastela will spice up Split's surroundings from December 1, 2019, to January 5, 2020. 

Leteci odred, Crvena jabuka, Psihomodo Pop and New Year's Eve with Alen Nizetic - are just some of the performers the people of Kastela and their guests will enjoy this year as part of the "Advent in Kaštela 2019" program, which will take place at the Novi Park in Kastel Luksic, the City of Kastela reported on Monday.


The event program was officially presented by Kastela mayor Denis Ivanovic, together with his deputy mayor Jadranka Matok Bosancic, head of the Board for Social Affairs and General Affairs Sandra Zokic, and director of the Kastela Tourist Board Nada Marsic.


“It all starts on December 1st at 6 pm with the Luka Nizetic concert. This year we have paid special attention to our children, for whom we have prepared numerous events within the Advent Fairytale, while everyone else will enjoy concerts and the great gastronomic offer of our Advent houses. Also, on Christmas Eve, bakalar (or cod to non-locals) will be distributed at the cathedral in Kastel Stari, during which several Kastela klapa groups will spontaneously gather and spread cheer around the citizens with their songs.”

We tried to design the best possible program this time, too, so we hope that everyone will find something for themselves this year as well,” said mayor Ivanovic, stating that an ice skating rink has been set up near the Novi Park to the delight of the youngest. Between Christmas and New Year, a concert will be hosted by one surprise guest, who will be announced later. We can say one thing - it will be a big name in Croatian showbiz. 

Every Sunday, starting at 5 pm, the Advent candles will be lit at Dardin in Kastel Novi, on an 18-meter-long wreath. To conclude, on the Feast of Saint Stephen, everyone will be able to see a live nativity scene in Kastel Novi.
