Our association presented itself as part of the Tourist Association of Slovenia at the 33rd Alpe-Adria Fair, which took place from February 15 to 18 at the Economic Exhibition Center in Ljubljana.

On Saturday, February 18, 2023, masks were walking around Gradež again. In the morning, the youngest sang and danced with some of their parents, in the afternoon the "slightly older" ones married the bride again. There is no more snow, maybe we managed to chase away the winter. 

This year, the 15th Exhibition of nativity scene was held in the hidden corners of Gradež, from December 18 to January 8, 2023, 350 cribs were on display. 

On October 15, Metka Starič from the Parnas Institute organized the filming of a short film about Christmas bread (poprtnik), part of which was also filmed in Gradež.

Our members attended several events in Slovenia at the invitation of representatives of other societies.

After a two-year break due to the epidemic, this year we again successfully prepared the Dried Fruit Festival. In the morning, 52 participants first walked the traditional Hike at Trubar's birth parish from Turjak to Rašica, then through Škocjan to Gradež. This year, due to the rain of the previous days, we adjusted the hike a little so that we would not be knee-deep in mud.

On Saturday, June 25, we gathered again at eight in the evening for the traditional Evening in the Village event. Despite the small number of visitors, we all enjoyed listening to different artists.

On a hot Saturday, June 18, members of our association took part in a professional excursion to the land of hayracks in Šentrupert. The program was prepared by our member and former president Marko Šavli, who is from a nearby village.

An exhibition of paintings by members of the Painter's society Ljubljana and amateur local painters, created at our Celebration of Spring event, ended on 29 May at Turjak Castle.

On April 24, after several years, despite uncertain weather forecasts in Gradež, the members of our association again organized the Celebration of spring (Green George).
