June 1, 2021 - The Split Spring street food festival returns to Đardin this week with top eats, good beats, and all the summer fun you hoped for! 

After an atypical spring, the beginning of a real tourist season in Split, which has finally started with the easing of epidemiological measures, will be marked by a favorite outdoor gathering - Split Spring by Staropramen. This culinary-entertaining-cultural event will take place for the third time in Strossmayer (Đardin) Park from Thursday, June 3, to June 12.

During these ten days, all visitors will be able to enjoy the specialties of some of the best Split restaurants. The offer is respectable, and there will be something for everyone at these street food houses.

Since the first edition, Split Spring by Staropramen has become a favorite gathering place in Split thanks to its charm, great atmosphere, and good energy. Come out for Barcaffe coffee, breakfast, lunch, and meetings, or bring the whole family along where the kids can enjoy the Baby Center corner. There will be deck chairs with cold Staropramen and the sounds of birds chirping, and you can even relax and read a book with Jana, grab dinner with friends, and kick off an evening out with Hendricks gin & tonic, Jack Daniels, or the exciting new summer drink WAI hard seltzer.

Every night from 7:30 pm, top DJs and saxophonists will enhance the atmosphere, like DJ Matthew Bee, saxophonist Boris Plazibat and DJ JohnnY I, saxophonist Ivan Skvorc alone and in combination with DJ Sensei, Jaksa Jordes on sax, DJ Kid VA, DJ Nikki Peducci, DJ mirsaisfab, and DJ Rea. With funky, jazz, and RnB rhythms, Split Spring brings the long-awaited start of life to the city. And that is why all of you who are here should not miss visiting Đardin for the next ten sunny days. Split Spring will work from 11 am to 11 pm.
