This is a charity event that takes place every year on the eve of the Festivity of St. Blaise, the celebration of the patron saint of Dubrovnik, and the proceeds traditionally go towards the renovation of the Church of Saint Blaise.

The first event, which is preceded by the traditional rite of the blessing of throats, is the Festivity of Klapa groups, held in the Marin Držić Theatre, where some of the most popular Croatian klapa a capela singing groups like Karaka, Kurenat, Staglin, Oštro, Cavtajke, Rikordo, Subrenum, FA Linđo and Kaše will perform. On this occasion, the Festa Dubrovnik association will mark the celebration of the 450th anniversary of the death of our greatest playwright Marin Držić through a dramatic reading of the Kolarin Theatre Company, with the participation of the Sorkočević Quartet.
