Vinohradske Vinobrani – Grape Harvest Festival

Taste young wine in Vinobrani Again this year, and for the eleventh time in a row, Prague district Vinohrady is about to celebrate grape harvesting on Friday September 21. This open air event will take place both at Namesti Miru square and Jiriho z Podebrad, and also at Havlickovy sady.

A market place will be built at Namesti Miru (in front of the Church of St. Ludmila), and wide range of events will be prepared for visitors: stalls will be offering different wine products like burcak (young wine), exhibitions of traditional medieval skills and crafts will be ready as well as several art performances. It all starts at 14:00. In the evening, live concerts are prepared.

It is said that this year the festival will be much different than previous years. Havlickovy Sady, the park around Grebovka, will play a major part as the whole area will host the celebration. For wine lovers, there is a large-scale program prepared, including wine tastings. Namesti Jiriho z Podebrad will also take a significant part in the whole event as it offers various singing, dancing, and swordplay performances.

No matter which place you decide to go to, be prepared to drink vast amounts of burcak there.
