Song and Dance Celebration

The Song Festival is not a matter of fashion; the Song Festival is a matter of the heart. – Lennart Meri

Every five years the Song and Dance Celebration is organised.

This year’s theme is “Touched by Time. The Time to Touch.” 187,800 spectators attended the last Song and Dance Celebration and 35,320 performers took part. The Estonian Song and Dance Celebration is on UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage. One of the top moments of the Song and Dance Celebration is the procession through the city. Participants dressed in traditional folk costume walk, dance, play, and sing. Tens of thousands of spectators line the streets.
