Slovenia Statehood Day, also known as Day of Slovenian Sovereignty, celebrates the declaration of Slovenia's independence from Yugoslavia. On 25 June 1991, the basic constitutional charter on the independence and sovereignty of the Republic of Slovenia was adopted as a constitutional act. The following day, on 26 June, independence was publically proclaimed in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana.

The official ceremony is held in front of the parliament building and features political speeches and the raising of the flag ceremony. During the day locals and visitors can enjoy also the Jurjevanje Folklore Festival. The festival showcases traditional entertainment, music, songs, dance and foods. It is the oldest and one of the largest of its kind in Slovenia.
