September in Novi Sad
September begins with festivals and events at the Štrand Beach. We still have a chance to enjoy warm weather, while we slowly prepare for the beginning school, exams and the arrival of golden fall. Find out what's up and about this month in Novi Sad.
We roll out this September with a kind cause - humanitarian Mom's Bazaar. On Saturday, September 1, from 11h to 19h, at this colorful bazaar, you will have a chance to buy and exchange toys, books, and baby gear, take part in humanitarian actions, and spend some quality time with your kids at children's' workshops on Štrand.
Video media festival
Video media, an international video art festival, will be held from August 31 to September 2 at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina (Dunavska 37). The festival is designed to present new video trends and to support the affirmation of young artists and students. This year, the audience will have a chance to see "Made in Serbia" works, experimental video formats, and the hybrid forms such as video applications and interactive video exhibitions.
