Olive Festival

21st to 28th of October 2023. This year we are again hoping for a bountiful harvest and are looking forward to many events centered around the olive and its home Brač. 

We warmly invite our guests to harvest olives in the grove and then press their own olive oil. Bring home a very special souvenir and taste the passion of Croatia. 

Olive Harvest & Banquet

The olive harvest is a very special highlight at the Lemongarden, so we celebrate it at our big olive festival. After the work is done, we end the day with a feast in the olive house. We serve Brač lamb on the spit, suckling pig and other regional delicacies from the grill. The legendary Croatian ensemble Kantaduri provides a lively atmosphere and the perfect background music for the evening.
