THE ECO-ETHNO GACKA FAIR
The Tourist Board of the City of Otočac organised the Eco-ethnic Gacka event ever since the year 2003.
The organisation started 18 years ago in order to enrich the tourist offer of the City of Otočac, but also to help the lesser known manufacturers who do not have the necessary resources to enter the larger market.
Every year, the fair has more and more exhibitors showing up, but also new visitors who have been attracted by a diverse offer of both old and new authentic products as well as the interesting and rich, cultural, artistic program.
Active following and cheering for the front-runners in cooking contests for the Hunter's Stew (boar/deer goulash with mushrooms) has become a traditional and indispensable part of the Fair, characterised as a friendly battle between professionals and amateurs for the title of the best Hunter's Stew Cook of the City of Otočac.
The Eco-ethnic Fair is an opportunity for the presentation and sale of products by registered exhibitors, but also to present the Gacka Valley as a tourist destination which has something culturaly valuable to offer to tourists even during the hot summer months, along with socialising and friendly competition.
