In the year when Novi Sad is European Youth Capital, the 8th fair of youth tourism, OPENS YOUTH FAIR will be held on 2 and 3 July 2019, two days before the world-famous music festival EXIT, when the city becomes the centre of young people from around 70 countries of the world.
What is important for us in OPENS is that several years ago, the idea to apply the city for European Youth Capital and show everyone that when united and when having youth organisations, different institutions and the city, we can make and excellent programme – was born at the Youth Fair itself.
Good things should not be changed!
The 8th OPENS YOUTH FAIR will be held at two locations at the city centre, Liberty Square and Katolička Porta, at it will enable the visitors to enjoy the rich program.
