Throughout the summer season, the Summer in Poreč Festival pervades the evenings with various music, dance and other artistic performances at various locations in the town to satisfy the needs of every lover of art.

The Euphrasian Basilica often hosts world-known classic musicians, the Lapidarij is known for the regular programme of jazz concerts. Apart from these must-see programmes, one should not miss festivals held in summer, like the Festival of klapas (group singing ) or Zlatne sopele – meeting of folk groups which present Istrian native costumes, dances and music to tourist. Thos in search of modern artistic expressions, there is the Street Art Festival featuring street theatre, performances, jugglers, music and film events making the nights special, joyful and lively.
