An Eventful Summer Line Up at Porto Montenegro
Tivat’s prized waterfront community bounces back from recent global challenges to bring a series of showline events planned for summer 2021, thanks to the easing of restrictions and resumption of summer living as best known
Of the classics, the International Fashion Festival returns on 23-24 July with its Green Edition, celebrating sustainable fashion, biodegradable materials and green practices in keeping with global rhetoric, presenting their creations to the IFF audience in an exciting new Jetty 2 location.
The designers will, once again, present their creations but this time, with a stunning waterfront backdrop and breathtaking sunsets for an added dose of summer glam.
The unmissable Superwine festival returns for its 8th edition on 3 July, with over 20 regional and European exhibitors sharing their delectable and reputable wines, with exclusive culinary zones to complement what has become the wine-tasting spectacle of the southern Adriatic.
Guests can enjoy a sleek and sophisticated evening by the Yacht Club Pool, sampling reserves from Europe’s most exquisite wineries, alongside relaxing DJ beats for epic summertime cool entertainment.
Meanwhile, early-doors September welcomes the return of the Made in New York Jazz Festival, in cooperation with Rabbit Records, a must-see event for jazz enthusiasts, whilst the beloved KotorArt International Festival connects culture and ambiance with musical talent for a series of open air performances throughout the village – re-awakening the village after an extended hibernation period with some much needed musical flavour.
‘This year, we’re proud to be hosting over 10 key occasion alongside our regular village rendezvous events, taking us back to pre-pandemic times and we could not be more thrilled. We’ve tackled all of the challenges posed to us and thanks to the lifting of measures in Montenegro, we’ve been able to say a warm hello to our summer favourites, such as the International Fashion Festival, SuperWine and Made in New York Jazz Festival’, said Anita Dekovic, Events Manager at Porto Montenegro.
The crème de la crème of this summer is Idan Zareski’s Bel-Air Fine Art sculpture exhibition, belonging to one of Europe’s leading contemporary art galleries. From art fairs across London, Paris, New York and Milan, to galleries in Miami, Abu Dhabi and the principal Swiss gallery in Geneva, Zareski’s monumental creations are soon to grace the Porto Montenegro art scene, bringing his love for candid sculptures representing emotion and unity to our village.
The artist’s Bigfoot Family works served to encourage cultural awareness across the globe, using his true life experiences and raw emotions as his muse. Zareski’s multicultural upbringing and cosmopolitan life between Africa, Europe, the United States and Latin America serve as his inspiration for promoting global unity and celebrating cultural differences – the perfect fit for Porto Montenegro’s cosmopolitan community.
The summer events line up kicks-off in early June extending through to late September, promising months of entertainment, music, variety, high spirits, art, culture and summer feel-good fusion, after a testing year for all. This summer shines a glimmer of light at the end of a turbulent and trialling tunnel, to offer the prospect of resumption of life as we know it – a life less ordinary at Porto Montenegro, reuniting friends old and new.
