Launched in 1985, the biennial Golden Stick Festival is a festival of children's and young people's theatre. Intended to promote children and youth theatre production, the festival consists of a competition programme, including Slovene production, and an accompanying programme, featuring international performances and round tables, and concludes with the presentation of the Little Golden Stick Awards. Initially organised by the Theatre for Children and Youth (GOML) at Španski borci venue, it has been produced by Ljubljana Puppet Theatre since 2009 and takes place in different locations in Ljubljana, such as Mini Theatre, Ljubljana Puppet Theatre, and Šentjakob Theatre.
