Gin & Brin Festival

The Gin & Brin Festival is returning to Dutovlje on the first weekend of July.

The festival will take place in the event space next to the sports field, where you will be able to enjoy the excellent drinks of the selected distillers and the street-food delicacies, take part in professional workshops and dance to the rhythms of rock’n’roll in the shade of tall pine trees.

For the first time, there will be also an evaluation of gins and junipers. If you need more information or you want to register your samples for the evaluation, you can contact us at ginbrinfestival@gmail.com. An expert five-member commission will evaluate the samples a week before the festival, on the 26th of June, and award the best of them during the festival.

Camping will be available in the immediate vicinity of the event space on both Friday and Saturday.

The event is organized by gin and juniper lovers from the ŠKRD Na Placu Association with a lot of volunteer work and good will.
