A number of different events are held in the Postojna Cave and its vicinity throughout the year, including the blues festival featuring top musicians, the Living Nativity Scene and concerts that take place in the subterranean halls.

Living Nativity Scene

During the festive season, the biblical scenes representing the birth of Jesus have been staged annually in the most beautiful halls and galleries of Postojna Cave for two decades.

The oldest and largest living nativity scene in Slovenia, which features biblical scenes of the birth of Jesus, is staged in the most beautiful part of the subterranean karst world. This year it will take place for the 26th year in a row. The sixteen scenes of the Nativity of Jesus are presented in the cave area with the most beautiful cave formations. Visitors can see the nativity scenes during a leisurely stroll around the subterranean world of Postojna and the magic of the whole experience will this year be further enhanced by Nuška Drašček, Klemen Bunderla, and more than a hundred singers and performers.

The Living Nativity Scene will be held on 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30 December 2015, between 13.00 and 15.00; performances are scheduled every half hour (with additional performances held at times of large numbers of visitors).

Postojna Cave Blues Festival

In the last ten years, the Postojna Cave stage has hosted over 100 blues concerts featuring more than 600 top blues musicians from all around the world. The concerts are held in the Jamski Dvorec Mansion in front of Postojna Cave.

Erazem's Knight Tournament

This is one of the largest and best known medieval events in Slovenia, featuring more than 200 costumed performers – individuals and touring groups from Italy, Croatia and Slovenia.

Erazem's Knight Tournament has been taking place for a decade and a half. For the past two years, the Night of Fire and Fun has been held on Saturday as an introduction to the medieval tournament that takes place the next day, on Sunday, and is becoming increasingly special and popular with visitors.

The Saturday programme gives visitors an opportunity to see what night-time sieges of the castle used to be like, get to know medieval dances, games with fire, and have fun listening to medieval music late into the night. The main part of Erazem's Knight Tournament held on Sunday is to bring to life the legend about Erazem of Predjama and the siege of the castle. The tournament features a variety of events of interest to children and adults alike.
