Everything calls for celebration in Slovenia! For example, the Cow Ball is more than 50 years old and celebrates the return of cattle from the pastures where during the summer they enjoyed the juicy and fresh grass.

Cows are truly the main heroes of the ball as they parade decorated with wreaths down the road through the Govic waterfall and Ukanc settlement accompanied by their herdsmen. After welcoming the cattle, you can enjoy folk music, dance with the locals, try herdsmen’s cheese, and even participate in log-sawing, horseshoe castling, and sling-shooting.

A day prior to the Cow's Ball, Bohinj hosts the Cheese & Wine Festival. This is the place to taste the famous Bohinj cheese paired up with locally produced wines. Caterer will be offering cheese and other dairy specialties to the visitors.
