Launched in 1971, the International Folkore Festival, Beltinci is held in the town Beltinci in the south-eastern part of Slovenia. Taking place at Beltinci Castle and in the Beltinci Park, the programme has always featured folkloric dance and custom demonstrations but has also expanded over the years to include exhibitions, book presentations, folk music evenings, cooking, and so on. In 2020 edition of the festival was cancelled due to the health crisis.

Special emphasis is given to cooperation with Slovenes living on the other side of the border. The programme has previously featured guest folkloric groups from Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Spain, France, Finland, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Mongolia, and Canada, a total of 164 groups presenting around 400 performances.
