Welcome to the home page of Tartu folk festival! This is the second year when the festival is being held.
The festival takes place on November 16th-18th 2018 in Tartu and Luunja.
The festival is mainly meant for young people or those, who feel young. Our wish is to show that exploring the depths of folklore is not boring, but on the contrary, can sometimes be very exciting and experiencing. Also, the festival will help us identify ourselves, answer questions such as: “Who are we? or “Why are we the way we are as a nation?”
Although the festival emphasises good quality concerts, the slogan: “Keskpõrandale kokku!” invites everyone to participate on the dance floor! Let us get together, delve into the beautiful heritage of our ancestors, think about our roots, and finally have a great party after the main concert on Saturday. All of that precisely in November, which has traditionally been the time for the young people to gather. Being the organisers, we want to hope that such groups will arise more and more all over Estonia and the theme of folklore will become as popular as it is in Latvia and Lithuania, our neighbouring countries.
Last year’s main performers were four folk groups from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Many guests from other Estonian folk groups performed at the party in Luunja as well.
