To date, several commemorative-cultural events have established themselves that take place before the Geoss memorial marker and became traditional. All are always held outdoors, regardless of the weather conditions.

The oldest event, began already in 1986, is intended for the Slovenian cultural holiday, 8 February. The Flag Day (Dan zastave) is an event held for the first time in 1998 that commemorates the first raising of the Slovenian flag in 1848 in Ljubljana. The Day of the Union of the Veterans of the War for Slovenia (Dan Zveze veteranov vojne za Slovenijo) is an event, held for the first time in 2003, with which we commemorate the days of 1991, which were a turning point for Slovenia.

Among the now already traditional cultural events, the ones that need mentioning are An Afternoon with the Composer, the Local . Anton Lajovic (Popoldan s skladateljem, domačinom, Antonom Lajovcem), which took place for the first time in 2001, The Young at the Heart of Slovenia (Mladi v srcu Slovenije) (2003) and the performances of selected schools from all over Slovenia. Of the sporting-recreational events the oldest is The March from Litija to Geoss (Pohod iz Litije na Geoss), which was first organized in 1990. The bicycle climb to Geoss is also traditional. These are just the most important cultural and sporting-recreational events as new ones appear year in and year out.

The development of Geoss up till now was based primarily on volunteer work of a few enthusiasts, members of the Geoss Society, the diligent locals from Slivna and some of the friends of Geoss. Without the money contributed by the sponsors and the enduring support of the home Municipality of Litija the project could not have developed to the current level despite the committed volunteer work.
