For this purpose, they organise various traditional events (Vinska vigred, Semiška ohcet, Tamburanje va Kostele, Jurjevanje, the Woodenware and Pottery Fair in Ribnica, Prangerjada, Psoglavski dnevi, Trški dnevi, Teden cvička, etc.). The above events feature rich programmes and are very well attended.
