The second “Novosadski Winter Fest” was officially opened yesterday, November 23, at Trg Slobode (Liberty Square).
The festival was opened by Milorad Radojević, a member of the City Council for Economy who welcomed Novi Sad citizens and tourists:
– Last year, during the event, tens of thousands of people stopped at the Liberty Square to warm up with a good atmosphere, food and drink, and travel by fiaker coach. I am glad that this year Novi Sad’s streets and squares will be concert podiums, places full of love and giving, and that a great number of tourists will visit Novi Sad during the winter holidays. This year, the tourist season was a record in our city. This shows us that Novi Sad is recognised by tourists, that the city that actively lives, and that every dinar invested in such manifestations is repeatedly returned to the City of Novi Sad – said Milorad Radojević.
The Singing Christmas Tree shone again at the Liberty Square, and the opportunity to perform on it was the first in this year were members of the choir “Colourful vocals” from Sombor, which were joined by Ana Štajdohar as special guest.
The evening was closed with a great performance by the band “Amajlija”.
Tonight at 6 pm on the Singing Christmas Tree, Music Music Center will perform. DJ Dimitri Tomino will perform at the main stage from 20:00, which has numerous performances in both his hometown and beyond. We are expecting a serious “sniper” with its unique and original Tech House showcase.
This year’s “Novosadski Winter Fest” will last from November 23 to December 30, 2017. Every night at the Trg Slobode children’s choirs will perform on the “Singing Christmas Tree” from 6PM, all interested will be able to ride a fiaker coach through Novi Sad streets, buy different products, handicrafts, New Year’s ornaments or tasty specialties in wooden houses, participate in different children’s humanitarian activities, and during the weekend listen to Novi Sad bands and DJs.
