This year, we counted 345 cribs, and maybe even more than last year, because they have been added since the opening of the exhibition, December 15 ... otherwise our intention is not to set records every year. More than 4,000 visitors have seen the exhibition by January 2, although the guided tour was canceled on December 22 due to heavy rain. Therefore, Santa Claus visited the youngest only on December 29 and took them enthusiastically with a special bus. 

On 15 December, the President of our Association for preserving heritage, Lojze Senčar, opened the 12th exhibition of nativity scene in the hidden places of Gradež. Mayor of Velike Lašče, dr.

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.
