During the summer season Narva City Department for Development and Economy organizes a series of events on Narva Riverside promenade.
The event schedule includes concerts, circus performances, street theatre productions, art exhibitions, creative workshops, children's programmes and competitions. During the events, various services are available on the promenade (sale of souvenirs, balloons and art; archery; coining). Events take place on the part of the promenade stretching from Sõpruse bridge to Narva harbour, including Päikese square, Dahlberg stage and Blind Garden slope.
The last summer event in Narva Castle’s Northern Yard is the traditional Festival “Summer into a Jar”. Usually, during the first day of the event berries and frits are preserved and jammed, while on the second day the preservation of vegetables and mushrooms is done. You can share your experiences, exchange the recipes and try some unusual ideas. If visitors wish to take part in the Festival and “trap summer in a jar” they should inform organizers in advance.
Narva Battle" as an international festival has grown into the main event of summer in Narva and it brings together military-historical clubs from all over Northern Europe to meet at the courtyard of Narva Castle. Soldiers in uniforms of Peter I and Karl XII times live in war camps that are located in the courtyard for three days to reconstruct one of the most famous battles of the Northern War that took place between Russia and Sweden. Reconstruction of a village of the same time period will show the everyday life of common people and the Northern Yard will host a fair.
The interactive concert-performance introduces young audiences to a simple dance number and a song, and a simple tutorial of how to make the best birthday card for parents.

With the concert and the book Life as a Promising Beginning, we are remembering Peeter Lilje (1950–1993), a former head conductor of ERSO.
Good friends of Peeter Lilje will step in front of the orchestra: Nikolai Aleksejev, a schoolmate from the days of Leningrad Conservatory and a former head conductor of ERSO who made his first contacts with ERSO in 1987 thank.
We think of nostalgia as the past. We do not give priority to waving communist flags or to political preferences. Those days are simply gone. When most people think of the past, they think of their first schoolday, their first love, first car, and many other of their firsts.
Nostalgia Days in Haapsalu are special because the events take place in the entire city during three days. The main day has always been Saturday when a parade of old vehicles takes place, followed by an exhibition, a concert, and a fair.
The festival takes place in the Old Town and on that day, the entire Karja Street becomes a promenade of flavours. Haapsalu welcomes anyone to the festival who has a passion for food, flavours, and summer in Haapsalu.
The festival programme also includes interesting concerts and performances on the stage of the Citizen Tower.
