Kekec Days 2024

Kekec days are back!

25 – 30 June 2024

Kranjska Gora

After a long time, the Kekec Days are coming back to Kranjska Gora again, and will be organised during the first week of the school holidays. The Kekec Days are all about fun and creativity, with Vandot’s fairy tale characters as the main theme.

We have prepared an attractive programme of events and animations aimed at all members of the family. There will be animations, theatre performances, concerts, creative workshops and many other exciting activities.

Kranjska Gora is the birthplace of Josip Vandot, the writer of the trilogy of youth stories about the shepherd boy Kekec. With his fearlessness, courage and kindness, Kekec always finds a way out of all kinds of problems. Interestingly, the writer based the story of Kekec on true events. In reality, there was a little shepherd boy called Gregec, who had a younger sister. The little sister could not pronounce Gregec and called her brother Kekec. So everyone started calling him Kekec.

In 1951, director Jože Gale made the first Slovenian feature film Kekec, based on the successful stories. This was followed in 1963 by the first Slovenian colour film, “Srečno, Kekec”, and in 1968 by a third film, “Kekčeve ukane”.
