The event usually takes place at various venues in the town of Koper (in case of bad weather the event is held indoor).

Due to the measures intended to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, the 12th international festival of desserts and sweets “Sweet Istria” will not be taking place in Koper this September. However, the “Sweet Istria Week” will be organised from 21 to 27 September in cooperation with Istrian catering operators.

During the “Sweet Istria Week”, selected catering facilities of the Slovenian Istria (coffee shops, pastry shops, restaurants and other types of catering facilities) will supplement their menus with a special sweet menu containing at least one dessert with one typically Istrian ingredient and one sweet drink.
