Festival “Karlovci grape picking” emerged from a traditional folk celebration that marked the beginning of grape picking season. This manifestation was re-established in 1992 and, since then, it has been organized every year during the last weekend in September, that is the first weekend in October. The main aim of this event is nourishing of the cultural and spiritual tradition of the town, improvement of tourism, and above all, an incentive to the wine makers to persist in wine production and, thus to continue the rich tradition of their ancestors. The programme of the event “Karlovci grape picking”, consists of economic component, within which selling exhibition of grape, wine and authentic souvenirs is organized; and cultural and art component consisted of exhibitions and rich cultural and entertaining programme (concerts of the distinguished musicians, theatrical performances, parade of folk societies, etc.). The festival mostly takes place in the centre of Sremski Karlovci.
