Old Town Summer Festivals
Every summer, Tallinn's medieval Old Town hosts many events and there are two beloved festivals that always bring joy to locals and visitors alike.
At the beginning of summer, from 2-4 June, Tallinn Old Town Days take place. The summer event, which has been organised for more than 20 years, fills the streets, courtyards and green areas of the old town with a varied and engaging programme. This year's guiding principle of the festival "Fresh View" focuses on community culture and the Old Town as a sustainable urban space.
A month later, from 6-9 July, Medieval Days will take over the old town and the heart of Tallinn will once again become a flourishing Hanseatic city. During the four days, you can participate in fun workshops teaching medieval skills, try your hand at sword fighting and other games of skill and strength, cheer at a medieval procession and many great shows and concerts.
From 18 August to 18 September, the annual Tallinn Fringe Festival will take place in several locations around the city, which will bring together many domestic and international artists. The goal of the open-access festival, which is now in its seventh year, is to bring different types of non-mainstream arts to the public.
