Mendel Festival
This year we celebrate the 200th birthday of Gregor Johann Mendel, abbot and brilliant scientist, and father of genetics! The festival combining science, faith and fun will take place in Brno - Mendel Square, from 20 to 24 July 2022.
The Mendel festival offers programs for the whole family – science, history, art, culture. You can visit the Mendel Room, see Mendel’s manuscript, and browse the new exhibition in the Abbey, which includes an original painting of Saint Augustine by the famous painter Peter Paul Rubens from 1639.

Last but not least, listen to your favorite performers: two stages at the Mendel Square in Brno, world and Czech top musicians. The programme will open with a concert performed by the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra and the Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno, who will perform the work of Leoš Janáček and present the world premiere of a new piece by one of the most sought-after contemporary composers: Tigran Mansurian Orhnerg – Nahapet Bari, written in honour of Mendel. The church concert will be broadcasted live at the square. Kool & the Gang, the authors of many hits from the United States are the headliners of the Friday programme.
