Numerous events

Korčula hosts numerous cultural events in the summer:
exhibitions, concerts, theatre performances, promotions and the Korčula Sword Dance Festival; also the Korkyra Baroque Festival which attracts musicians of world repute.
The ancient sword dance of Moreška, an officially protected intangible cultural heritage of the Republic of Croatia, has been performed in Korčula for more than 400 years. Two kings and their armies fight for a beautiful girl (Bula) in a dramatic seven-figure dance accompanied by a wind orchestra. Moreška is performed twice weekly during the summer season.
However, the most significant performance is that of the Day of the Town or Saint Theodore’s Day, July 29, when the three brotherhoods colourfully process through the town - All Saints, Saint Rocco, and Saint Michael. Their costumes and religious regalia are especially impressive.
