There is also a positive correlation between making a repeat visit and recommending it to others. There is a weak correlation with making a repeat visit and sharing the experience through social networks and a positive medium correlation between recommending the festival to others and sharing the experience through social networks. Contribution–Identifying the motives for visit a particular event is important for identifying visitors’ needs and preferences. The paper contributes to understanding what motivates visitors to visit different events. The results of this research are aimed at helping the organizers of various events improve the quality of service and content for different target group of visitors. Further research could investigate visitors’ attitudes before the event, during the event and after the event. The researchers should also investigate the correlation of each of the motives for visiting an event with satisfaction and the difference in tourist experience as well as satisfaction between locals and visitors from other cities in Croatia and foreign visitors.
