A strong element of local identity of the municipality and its inhabitants are »Laufarji«, one of the most recognizable traditional carnival groups in Slovenia. They are noted for masks carved from linden wood, and clothes of natural material (ivy, spruce, straw, moss, material remaining after linen weaving). The "Cerkno Laufarija" has been carried out for centuries according to unwritten rules passed on to the next generation by word of mouth.
