Every year from July 1 to August 31, the festivals "Kastela Cultural Summer" are held, which consists of 60 different events: theater performances, photo exhibitions, concerts of popular and classical music, folklore, sports competitions and various fishing and hunting festivals. Culinary lovers can enjoy these specialties in the restaurants "Adriatic", "Villa Cezar" and "Duje".Those who want a quieter holiday will enjoy Kastel Luksic, and those who want a more energetic time can visit nearby Trogir, Split and Omish.
