In Ljubljana, November is considered a month of gastronomy and the city becomes the gourmet capital of Slovenia. A number of different events connected by the common thread of good food and wine take place every year as part of the November Gourmet Ljubljana food and wine festival. The program of the gourmet festival will take place if the epidemic situation will allow us to execute it, of course in a slightly different form than in previous years and respecting COVID prevention measures.

Taking place in one city and under a single brand, November Gourmet Ljubljana brings together a diverse and varied culinary offer based on the principle of sustainability. The festival takes place under the Gourmet Ljubljana brand, which links together a wide range of culinary and gastronomic events in Ljubljana and Slovenia. As a result, the finest culinary creations of Slovenia are concentrated in Ljubljana in the month of November, at a range of events, tastings, guided tours and cooking workshops.

Ljubljana’s culinary offer is gaining international recognition, as demonstrated by the arrival of two renowned gastronomic guides; last November at the November Gourmet Finale event the Gault & Millau Ljubljana / Ljubljana Quality special issue was launched, and in June 2020, the iconic Michelin guide revealed the first-ever Michelin Stars in Slovenia - Ljubljana received its first Star and also quite a number of restaurants from Ljubljana and the Ljubljana Region received special ratings. Furthermore, Slovenia will be a proud holder of the title European region of gastronomy 2021 next year.

The program of this year's November Gourmet Ljubljana festival will be revealed soon.
