On Sunday, September 15, 2019, our association again proved to be a successful organization of the Dry Fruit Festival and the Hike by Trubar`s birth parish. Only 50 hikers took part in the morning trails, but more than 2.000 people visited Gradež, who spent an unforgettable afternoon. Occasionally, all the tables were occupied and more parking was needed.

Before the rain and considerable cooling at the beginning of the school year, we successfully put under the roof the organically grown millet.

On the 22nd of June, our society organized the seventh evening in the village, which was attended by quite a few villagers despite the bad weather.

On June 15th, our association organized a trip to Austrian Carinthia, Lake Vrba and the surrounding villages. 

An exhibition of paintings by members of the Association of Visual Artists of Ljubljana in amateur local painters was concluded. It was held from 13 to 20 May 2019 at the Dom krajanov Turjak.

This year we also organized a carnival parade on the carnival Saturday.

On Saturday, 16th February an annual general meeting of our association was held, it was attended by a half of its members.

It has become a tradition that a few of our members attend an Alpe-Adria (Alps-Adria) fair, this year the 30th taking place between the 30th of January and the 2nd of February. 

Once more did our Association for preserving heritage successfully put up the nativity scene in the hidden places of Gradež, the biggest nativity scene in Slovenia - 350 nativity scenes were put up and 3000 people visited us just to see them. You can imagine that such a big number of visitors, was a big deal for our village, especially because there are only 260 inhabitants, including the new settlement, and the old Gradež only has 120 inhabitants.

Our Association for preserving heritage prepared the 11th display of nativity scene in Gradež near Turjak, which is the biggest in Slovenia. More than 340 nativity scenes will be on display until the 2nd of January 2019.
