The points of the festival amaze, laugh, surprise, sometimes confuse, but are always guaranteed to interest and entertain the Porec and tourist audiences. During Street Art Poreč, every area of the city can become a stage, every building or monument a backdrop, and every passer-by an interested observer, even a participant.
