PortoEtno - Prostor

The Festival takes place in Exportdrvo, a hall with an area of 5,400 square meters. After the renovation in 2020, the hall became the new cultural centre of Rijeka intended for exhibitions, fairs, and musical and stage performances. Ever since Exportdrvo has hosted a wide variety of events.

PortoEtno - Povijest

The Festival is based on the 20 years of tradition of the Etno smotra manifestation, which was held in Rijeka with the aim of presenting the culture of national minorities active in the City and the County. The manifestation was redesigned and renamed to Porto Etno as part of the Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture. Since 2020 the new festival has been organised by the Croatian Cultural Centre Sušak (HKD).
