The town of Pag has a rich folklore heritage. The Pag folk costume is of beautiful colors and shapes, and the ladies' head cover hemmed with Pag lace is particularly attractive.

The central part of summer is marked by the Summer Pag Carnival, when the town brass band plays the traditional Pag wheel-dance on Petar Krešimir IV Square, a masquerade is held, folk chants are sung, and a folk play Robinja (Slave) is performed. The biggest religious holiday in Pag is Assumption of Virgin Mary on August 15th, celebrated by an official procession.
