TradInTrade fair was first organized on the 4th edition of the festival. The aim of the fair is to promote old and almost forgotten crafts that existed, and still exist in some forms in central Istria (pottery, stone carving, making all sorts of souvenirs, children’s toys, tools …), as well as promoting the healthy food and its own growing domestic vegetable varieties. Folklore group from Pazin will organize an evening of local cuisine, where the older members of the community will prepare some of the local dishes (soup made from vegetables, gnocchi or pasta on the “white” and the sauce of chicken meat.
