Events in Bansko

Bansko has a lot to offer throughout the whole year. You will be able to enjoy not only the beauty of the Pirin mountains but also many annual events.

Events in Bansko are always vibrant and dynamic. Enjoy the very best during your stay.

Every year in August, Bansko gathers together some of the best Bulgarian and international jazz singers and musicians. The festival is already a tradition and is a magical centre for meeting and exchanging ideas with other jazz fans, making friends and having fun! 

At the end of August, Bansko is hosting a two-day Opera Festival. Classical music pieces together with opera are performed in the open air for the delight of the spirit in the magnificent scenery of the majestic Pirin Mountains.
