June Highlights

01 MIDSUMMER CELEBRATIONS

Midsummer is the most popular festival in Estonia. Midsummer celebrations are spent eating good food, enjoying good drinks and good company, often in the countryside. The high point of the celebration is bonfires and the making of midsummer incantations. St. John’s Day is June 24th.

02 CHILLING OUT AMONG THE TREES

The Schilling Festival fills the small town of Kilingi-Nõmme on July 4th with trendy party people. Peaking Lights (US), Polly (RUS), and Siinai (FIN) will perform in the Estonian forest capital.

03 STREET FOOD DELICACIES

For the second time in a row, the Street Food Festival will take place at Telliskivi from June 13-14. More that 40 cafés, restaurants and food stands will take part in the festival, along with a dozen or so restaurants from abroad.

The classical harmonica festival will take place in Pärnu from June 26-28. The programme includes competitions, concerts, jam sessions and a parade through the city. Harmonica players will be coming from all over the world.
