The Idrija Lace Festival 2020

The festival has been held intermittently since 1952 – in 2020, the festival, which will run from 19 – 21 June 2020, will be in its 39th year. The popular and highly visible event is the main promoter of Idrija lace. The event celebrates and preserves the tradition of (Idrija) lace making and encourages innovation in its manufacture and application. In recent years, the festival has, on the one hand, celebrated the traditions that embody Idrija lace, and on the other, through a varied programme of events and promotion, created a modern event that truly builds on the qualities and applications of lace: accuracy, skill, ingenuity and to encourage the festival’s message of innovation and creativity. The festival programme takes place over three days, from Friday to Sunday. During this period, the town is alive with lace, lace made items by children and grown-ups fill the streets and shop windows are decorated with lace. There are exhibits of domestic and foreign lacemaking artwork, and lacemaking shops will open their doors to many interested visitors. The festival starts on Friday with the official opening ceremony, and over the next few days, visitors can take part in specialist meetings, lectures, lace making workshops, creative workshops, lacemaking award ceremonies and selections for the best lace products in competitions.
