The event is held in the second half of July, it lasts two days and gathers more than 1000 participants from 29 Czech besedas in Croatia and their guests from the Czech Republic and Croatian cultural societies.

The biggest attraction of Dožinky is the harvest parade with more than a thousand participants, dozens of allegorical chariots decorated with wheat, which show all the harvest work, from planting to making bread, and there are also many minority groups dressed in traditional costumes.
