Medjugorje, 01. 08. - 06. 08. 2016.
It was only few months ago that we had the 26th Youth Festival that gathered large number of the participants from all over the world. We are already preparing for the next on that will begin on August 1, 2016, not on July 31, 2016. The Youth Festival will finish on August 6, 2016. The organisers would like to inform all of the youth that due to the World Youth Day with Holy Father Francis in Poland, the next Youth Festival will exceptionally begin one day later. We expect you all, dear young people, to join us at the 27th Youth Festival in Medjugorje, they said. These prayer meetings were initiated by late Fr. Slavko Barbaric in 1990, when he gathered around 100 young people, two guitar players and the event was held in the green tent (located where the Hall of St. John Paul II is today). The number of the participants was increased each year and this is now the biggest event in Medjugorje.
