Fisherman’s Feast in Jezera
Who will be better, who will be stronger
The Feast of the Assumption is celebrated on 15 August, and is the central event of the Days of the Sea in Jezera. After the mass, festivities start at the seafront and the square with fish specialities and entertaining music. On the Assumption Day in Jezera, as befits a fishermen’s village, there is a Fishermen’s Feast. As it is the central celebration of this holiday, traditionally visited by everyone on the island, the seafront, streets and squares are full of people. All prepared fish dishes and other seafood specialities are quickly consumed. Apart from restaurants, fish and shellfish can be obtained at several stands on the main square. Along with plenty of good entertainment and fish specialities, several stages are set for performances of some of the greatest names in Croatian music like Jole, Severina, klapa Intrade… In recent years, at the count of midnight, there is also a fireworks display.
