Vidovdan Serbian Cultural and Artistic Association was established in the autumn of 2004. Its founders were individuals aware of the importance of preserving and transferring traditions to younger generations. The Vidovdan association is aimed at preserving the culture and tradition of the Serbian people, especially by reproducing their rich cultural heritage.

Vidovdan has steadily grown and currently has around 100 members. The Association brings together young people who, while socialising, learn Serbian folk dances and songs, thereby fostering a sense of their cultural roots. Apart from preserving tradition, the Association is also a place to meet, talk, socialise and admire the beauty of dancing, singing and playing music.

The Association is distinguished from most other Serbian associations by the fact that it is run by young people, most of them university students, devoting their free time to growth and development of the Association. This is reflected in numerous performances and other cultural events that the members enjoy attending.
