First fair of the year was held on February 13th, then August 24th and later on November 11th. Later the fair was held at St. Matthew’s in Cere, throughout the whole year. It always attracted a large number of local and foreign visitors.
On this day, Žminj’s taverns and restaurants regularly make a well-known dish, tripe, for the visitors. Following the model of the year-round fair, in the summer months additional little Žminj fair "Mali žminjski samanj" is held in Žminj's Tower for our guests. The biggest and most diverse fair is held on the occasion of the largest folk festival in Istria, Bartulja. This festivity takes place in Žminj each year on the last Saturday in August.
