Jazz nad Odrą
JAZZ NAD ODRĄ – 59th edition
Beginning in 1964, this annual festival became one of the key jazz music events in Poland.
Each spring the festival presents the most interesting jazz artists from around the world. Throughout the years we saw some of the greatest jazz stars from Europe and around the world, including Pat Metheny, Paco deLucia, Al diMeola, Kenny Garret, Dave Holland, Diana Krall, Cassandra Wilson, Lizz Wright and Robert Glasper. What is more, the festival stages regularly host the most promising musicians of the young generation, including the laureates of the The Jazz Personality Contest. It is an inseparable part of the festival, and one of its hallmarks. The oldest and the most prestigious jazz competition in Poland is open for instrumentalists and singers, who at the time of the festival are 35 or younger.

18th Fantasy Days in Wrocław
On 20th August (Friday) in Leśnicki Castle starts 16th Fantasy Days – the oldest fantasy-related event in Lower Silesia, with beginnings dating back to 2004. Since that time, it has attracted an increasing number of fantasy consumers (predicted to be around 3000 for this edition) and creators alike, including writers, filmmakers and actors.
Fantasy Days is a passion we share with all visitors, an event dedicated to everyone interested in broadly defined fantasy and popculture. Do you like watching movies and cartoons? Reading books and comics at your own pace? Playing video games? Or perhaps board games are more to your tastes? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this event has something for you! We guarantee high quality fun whose only limitation is your own imagination!
The Wrocław Good Beer Festival
13 The Wrocław Good Beer Festival
The Wrocław Good Beer Festival is currently the largest events in Poland and one of the largest in Europe that promote original and unique beers from small and medium breweries across the country and beyond it.
As the name suggests, at the Festival you will see the best the beer market has to offer. You might be surprised by the variety of tastes and styles and hopefully motivated to explore the world of good beer and its richness.
The Festival consists not only of beer tasting. We look at beer from every possible angle. We talk about its history, styles, we show how you can brew it yourself and we invite you into the kitchen to show you that beer can be just as elegant and complex as wine.
The history of the Wrocław Good Beer Festival starts in 2010 when Joanna Boś, an event organizer at Centrum Kultury “Zamek” and Agnieszka Wołczask-Prasolik, the organizer of the Wrocław Brewing Workshops came together. Between their passion, experience, the drive to create something special and a multitude of ideas the Festival grew from a local gathering of beer enthusiasts to an event that is well known in Poland and abroad. We regularly have guests and exhibitors from countries like Lithuania, Latvia, the Czech Republic or Germany.
