Emigrants day

The last Saturday of July is a very special day for people of Susak - it’s the Emigrant’s day. The village is cleaned and decorated for this special occasion. A water cistern by the schoolhouse is transformed into improvised stage, where a concert will be held. Everybody puts their Sunday clothes on, and gathers around the stage. Usually a politician shows up giving promises, posing for the press. To this date both Croatian presidents and a few ministers have visited the island.

This is probably the only day in the whole year when the whole island comes to life!
