You can buy a cup at any stand, either with beer or snacks. The 0,3l and 0,5l cups are returnable, 50 CZK deposit, unless you want to keep them as a souvenir. :-)
WHAT A SOUVENIR FOR 50KČ!
From 2022, visitors to important cultural events in Nový Jičín, such as the Beer Festival or the Town Festival, can refresh themselves from the returnable cups with a stylish print designed by Pavel Kozubík from the PAPE Gallery for the City of Nový Jičín. The organisers are pursuing a twofold goal - to reduce waste by using reusable cups made of recyclable material and to present the city through a festival brand, which includes cups with original printing. Their size is 0.5 litres, with the option of being calibrated to 0.3 and 0.4 litres.
And since the main venue of large events is usually Masaryk Square, the authors of the art designs were inspired by the dominant features of the historic city centre – the parish church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, the Marian column and the beautiful buildings of the Old Post Office, Laudon House, the Town Hall and Žerotín Castle.
However, none of the mentioned jewels stands alone in the picture; there are people moving around in the vicinity. They include locals and tourists, a mother and child, a businessman, a senior citizen, lovers, a policeman, a cyclist, a backpacker, a musician, an ice cream maker, and others. A slightly funny element is the fact that everyone is wearing a hat because it simply belongs to Nový Jičín. We hope you will like the new cups!
How does it work:
- I arrive at the booth and I don't have a returnable cup yet.
- You can buy a new returnable cup at the booth for 50 CZK. The deposit is collected only for the first drink. The cups are available at all stands.
- I arrive at the stand and I have already purchased a returnable cup.
- The staff will take your used, undamaged returnable cup and replace it with a new, clean one (replacement of the used cup with a new one is necessary for hygiene reasons).
- I'm leaving the Beer Party and want to return my cup.
- We will only buy the cups back at the collection point (VÝKUP KELÍMKŮ) - in the tent of the town of Nový Jičín, in the corner of the square (side by the church). We can buy back undamaged cups for 50 CZK. If the cup is cracked, has a broken strap, or is damaged in any other way, it cannot be bought back. We only buy back cups from this event, not from other festivals.
RENTAL OF CLIP-ON CUP CARRIERS FOR RETURNABLE CUPS
Going to a festival with family or friends? This year we have provided carriers to make carrying multiple cups from the refreshment stand more convenient and easier.
The carriers can be rented for a refundable deposit of 100 CZK at the TIC reception in Laudon House.
Please treat the carriers with care, as if they were yours and not just borrowed. Return the carrier in its original condition, it is not intended for other types of bottles, but for returnable cups only. Therefore, please do not overload it.
RE-PURCHASE OF THE CUPS
The cup collection point can be found in the tent, in the south-east corner of the square called "VÝKUP KELÍMKŮ" (towards the parish church).
CUPS CAN ONLY BE RETURNED ON THE DAY OF THE FESTIVAL, BUT NO LATER THAN 01:00, AND ONLY AT THE COLLECTION POINT ("výkup kelímků"). PLEASE RESPECT THIS REGULATION. LATER REPURCHASE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
VISUAL CONCEPT OF RETURNABLE CUPS FOR THE TOWN OF NOVY JICIN
The idea of the reversible cups is based upon the concept of capturing the beauty of the town of Nový Jičín, its inhabitants, modern society, and unforgettable events that you can experience in this town. The competition itself required that the cups promote the city of Nový Jičín and present its beauty. Our idea from the very beginning was to connect the town's citizens and its architecture because both inherently belong together. The city has a beautiful and unique square as well as the town's residents. The cultural events themselves (the Town Festival, the Beer Festival), for which the cups were made, are held on the square. The graphics of the cups are inspired by the square's selected landmarks and the surrounding area (church, Marian Column, Old Post Office, Laudon House, Town Hall, Žerotín Chateau). The people, visitors, tourists - a mother and her child, a shopkeeper, a senior citizen, lovers, a policeman, a cyclist, a backpacker, a musician, an ice-cream maker, and others are all included. A slightly funny element is the fact that everyone is wearing a hat because it simply belongs to Nový Jičín. The intention was to emphasize that it is all about meeting people, communication, and entertainment. That's why the graphic design is built only on art made of fonts. All buildings and people are made of letters and all the symbols that the chosen font offers. We have aimed for an original and funny, playful form. The graphic encourages you to search, wander and explore the historic city centre. The chosen slogan only reinforces our intention.
PAPE Gallery - we are a cultural space that is conceived as a gallery, art shop and graphic studio in one. We are located in the centre of the city of Odry, where we have been operating since 2016. We deal with advertising graphics, visual style, logotypes, web and packaging design and bookbinding. Our goal is quality work, joy, and a high aesthetic level. We have already held about 20 exhibitions in the gallery space of contemporary art, and in the art shop, we offer our own paper products and original products by various designers.
