Kurent Jump

February 11, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The Kurent Jump marks the awakening of the Kurents for Cleveland Kurentovanje festival! The Kurent Jump is traditionally the first time that the Kurents appear in public, with their bells loudly ringing as they dance around a bonfire, initiating the Kurents’ mission of chasing away winter to make way for spring.

Doors will open at 5:30PM for this 21+ Adults Only event. Get ready to party with the Chardon Polka Band in the main hall of Slovenian National Home from 6:30PM to 10:00PM. Tavcar’s Catering will return this year to provide delicious Slovenian food and treats available for purchase. Don’t forget to stop at the cash bar and grab some wine, a beer, or soft drink to wash it down with! We expect that all the singing and dancing should make enough noise to wake up the Kurents around 8PM outside in the courtyard, so bring your winter coats to enjoy this outdoor spectacle.

What your ticket includes:

– Entry to the Kurent Jump Event
– Initial 2023 sighting of the Kurents
– Jammin’ with the one and only Chardon Polka Band
