Local people and visitors show great interest in the Carsic wedding, wich takes place every other year in the final week of August. The ceremony started in 1968 and is based on the marriage ceremony of the Carsic people from the time of the latter part of the XIX century, and has been reconstructed from historical and ethnollogical sources. From Thursday to Sunday, the visitors can witness: the stag party and the hen party, where the engaged couple say goodbay to their friends; then the serenade that the groom dedicates to his belloved; the transport of the dowry to the groom's house, and finally, on the Sunday, watch the real Carsic wedding, in which about 500 people take part, dressed in the traditional costume. The marriage ceremony takes place at the church on the Tabor hill, at wich point the partecipants go on foot in a bridal procession as far as Repen, where, in the Carsic House they can also witness the giving away of the bride to the groom's family. Usually, the entire celebration, wich lasts for four days, attracts the interest of thousands of locals and tourists.
