Donors' salon, a handicraft exhibition, creative workshops - are an integral part of all festivals, and the Primavera Feast will also join the club Fit Woman Montenegro, an organization that promotes healthy and active life in the community. Their instructors - volunteers for the Zumba and fitness training sessions at the Boka Park Hotel. In the same area, there are several other activities - recycling workshops within the Reduce - Reuse - Recycle project, which NGOs carry with a group of citizens #OČISTI.ME (Clean Me), and other educative and fun activities.
As a creative inspiration, the theme of Primavera remains spring, which will be presented this year through handicrafts, gastronomic delicacies, as well as a driving force for a healthier life and a sustainable relationship with Nature.
The exhibition of domestic products and handicrafts on the terrace of the City Café will be held on Sunday, 12 May from 10 am to 2 pm. About 30 exhibitors are expected, some of whom will be present at Herceg Novi for the first time.

Donors are invited to submit their delicacies from spring crops, and visitors, with always delicious food tasting, have the opportunity to contribute to the Iva Bijelić Foundation's action in treating another young citizen of Herceg Novi-Luka Miliša from Bijela, who is nine years old.
As part of the preparation of Primavera, a set of creative workshops is planned, with decorative canvas bags, as an alternative to plastic bags. Every workshop attendant will be able to carry his handbag with him as a fashion detail for the 'spring-summer 2019' season, the organizers said.
