Belgrade is still open for tourists and travelers in October 2021. For now, there are no restrictions when it comes to visiting bars, clubs, restaurants, and attending events (just bring your covid passports). Thus, we have selected several festivals (and events) that might be worth your attention. A good thing is that the weather is still great, and we can hope for Indian summer in Belgrade.

So let’s kick off with BELGRADE SAXperience  

EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL SAXOPHONE FESTIVAL – BELGRADE SAXPERIENCE 2021

The eighth international saxophone festival in Serbia – Belgrade SAXperience will be held from September 28th to October 1st in Belgrade.

Belgrade SAXperience is a unique international saxophone festival, featuring the most prominent international and local saxophonists. It is special because it follows the contemporary trends and tries to reach the broadest audience, so in addition to classical and jazz music concerts in the most important halls of Belgrade, the audience also has the opportunity to attend day-light outdoor performances, and evening club appearances. An integral part of the Festival is an educational program for youth, who master their instrument skills through master courses. The focus is on the promotion of new compositions for saxophone, so we commission composers to write compositions to have their first performance at the Festival. Belgrade SAXperience is the winner of the Belgrade Stars prize, awarded by the Youth Office of the City of Belgrade.

Another interesting festival is ART WEEKEND BELGRADE organized by Culture Centre Grad. Art Weekend Belgrade is an event that takes place in multiple locations in Belgrade and aims to promote the local contemporary art scene. The program consists of specially curated exhibitions in galleries, a conference, and organized guided art tours.

It will take place in a number of interesting venues around the city from 20 till 29.10.2021.

For the programme and updates follow FB page.

Likewise, the SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE – ENERGY EFFICIENCY conference will be held from October 8 to 10 at the Yugoslav Film Archive.

In addition to lectures by 10 prominent architects from 10 countries, the conference will host two workshops for students and young architects, one led by landscape architect and award-winning garden designer Kate Gould from England, while the second workshop will be led by Saša Begović, a professor at the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb and founder of the 3LHD studio.
