14. October 2022.

Today starts the 8th. Baska Outdoor Festival ( BOF ), an event where professionals and enthusiasts of various sports and outdoor activities gather together to enjoy the experience of one of the most exciting events on the island of Krk, which in one weekend brings together all the outdoor forces and resources that Baška has at its disposal.

Thus, from October 14 to 16, all lovers of an active and sporty lifestyle will find an activity for themselves through five attractive outdoor sports programs and a multitude of accompanying sports, educational and entertainment content.

From the position of the destination as the most popular off-season event in Baška, this means that BOF will come to Baška more than 2000 visitors who will enjoy an intense and entertaining three-day program, organized by the TZ of the municipality of Baška in partnership with Valamar Riviera and numerous organizers of sports events. 

If we look at the numbers and consumption, guests must arrive the day before and thus get 4 nights. Of course, some will choose two or three overnight stays, but one thing is for sure, the Baška Outdoor Festival has become a reason to come, which generates close to 10.000 overnight stays in October. Along with visitors and locals, serious tourism spending is generated throughout the weekend in August. 

It was during the Baška Outdoor Festival in 2018 that Baška celebrated its first millionth overnight stay in Baška, and this great success was repeated this year. So on Friday, October 7, Baška recorded its millionth overnight stay in 2022, which is the best indicator of the results of intensive work and progress after two really challenging tourist years.

In addition to the sports part of the program, the weekend schedule of Baška Outdoor Festival also includes interesting lectures, free workshops, concerts and a rich program for children. An important lesson that we can learn is precisely the additional content, primarily programs for children. This is how we target families, and while one member of the family is participating in the program, the other part is enjoying Baška and the island of Krk with their children. 

Thus, we increase the number of overnight stays per participant, but more importantly, we attract a wider number of stakeholders, because they travel with their families and we have content for everyone. Win-win for everyone.

But quality content is key as a reason for coming. Bravo Baska.
