This includes a barbeque competition, animal shows, dance and musical performances, and different activities for children. In addition, the most unique and biggest garden produce will be selected at a special show and guests wearing costumes will win prizes. However, the highlight of the cultural programme is a performance by Tanel Padar on the main stage.
For those looking to get to the fair by public transport, free buses will run between Jõgeva and Palamuse throughout the day. The buses leave and stop at the parking lot of the old railway station in Jõgeva and at the workshop gate on the edge of Palamuse.
