In summer there are various kinds of entertainment in Mošćenička Draga and surroundings. Fisherman’s Nights have been traditionally organized for years, and one of the most significant ones is the party organized on St. Marina’s Day (St. Marina is the patroness of M. Draga), which is called Marinina (the Day of St. Marina – the Day of Mošćenička Draga). Popular bands play, various games based on local customs are organized, and the final is reserved for marvellous fireworks. The special attention is to traditional regata of boat on sail that is taking place on a St. Marina's day. Apart from the traditional parties on the seafront, you can also take part in local parties, which are organized all over the community. Various music, painting, poetry, and musical happenings take place at the end of the beach, in the Contovo park, Mošćenice and Brseč. If you walk across the center of the town you will often hear klape of Primorje, vocal groups singing authentic national songs of Istria, Dalmatia and Kvarner under "mulberry trees"near the little port.

We would also suggest visiting exhibitions culturally related to the past, tradition and tourism in this area. In Mošćenice at the end of August there is an international art colony - Mošćenički Pinel (The paintbruch of Mošćenice). In the Church of St. Andrew in Mošćenice  take place classical music concerts and also Christmas and Easter Concerts. At the end of August you can visit the international Brseč Art painting exhibitions. At the end of July Mošćenice are host to jazz-blues festivals.

Every year at  the beginning of January the Carnival opening ceremony begins by raising the Carnival Flag, which is a sign that the Carnival has started in the whole area of the Community of Mošćenička Draga. The peak of the carnival is the traditional ceremony of burning down the carnival mascot at the edge of the pier in the center of Mošćenička Draga. There is a high "rocket" and Gobo, our Carnival mascot, enters it every year, as we "reach the verdict" that he should fly to the Moon. It all takes place on the last day of Carnival, Ash Wednesday, and we also call it the "Carnival Wednesday" , which is the day of fasting, so we recommend white cod-fish spread, or stewed cod-fish, which can be found in almost all the restaurants, and we also recommend  the restaurant in Hotel Marina  for the last carnival dance.
