Sea Festival

Liepāja is proud of its seashore and harbour, therefore every year we honour the nature’s forces and people whose everyday job is at the sea – fishermen and sailors. As every year the Sea Festival will start with the sounds of ship horns and commemorative moment for the lost fishermen and sailors. Cultural and entertainment activities, and sport competitions will bring the festive feeling. There would be no Sea Festival without the welcoming of Neptune. A craftsman and home-producers market will be held.

Summer Solstice

Everyone will be able to experience the magic of the midsummer night also in the city at the open-air stage “Pūt, vējiņi”, where already traditionally the midsummer bonfire will be made and songs sung. In the midsummer dance everyone can welcome the morning sunrise.
