Varaždin Baroque Evenings

to

Baroque music has been persistent in Croatian baroque capital and former capital city for almost fifty years. Varaždin Baroque Evenings (VBE) is held in autumn, mainly in churches and palaces, but not only in Varaždin – the festival had overgrown the city boundaries since 1971 when the first three-day-long festival was held. Now it is a two-week festival with thirty concerts, performed by few hundreds of musicians in front of approximately ten thousand people from all over the world. It is renowned as a European and world-famous early music festival. Concerts are now held mostly in Northwestern Croatia, but VBE had been a guest in numerous European countries. Our slogan is “Varaždin Baroque Evenings – more than music”. It includes numerous accompanying events – from the flower show in Varaždin Old Castle, book promotions, exhibitions, and festive gastronomy events. From last year we have presented some new content – rock-baroque evenings and baroque beer. Let us built new bridges with the partner country of 49 Varaždin Baroque Evenings – Sweden.
