Tallinn holds nine youth festivals this summer

A total of nine youth festivals will take place across Tallinn during the summer, focusing on extreme sports, street art and dance, and music. The summer of festivals kicks off on 14 May in Männi Park as part of Tallinn Day.

"Summer holidays for young people should be as stimulating as possible. I'm glad that for several years now, young people who spend the summer in the city are being considered. Organising festivals in the five districts of Tallinn means that almost every youngster can find something to do in their own neighbourhood," said Deputy Mayor Vadim Belobrovtsev. "All in all, there will be nine festivals with a variety of different themes, including activities to support creativity, entrepreneurship and teamwork, as well as plenty of entertainment that young people are looking forward to this summer."

The festivals will take place on 14 May in Männi Park in Mustamäe, 3 June in Tondiraba Park in Lasnamäe, 2 July in Inglirand in Kesklinn, 9 July at the Põhja-Tallinn Youth Centre and Kase Park, 4 August in Vilde Park in Mustamäe, 12 August in Kari Park in Põhja-Tallinn, 27 August in Kivila Park in Lasnamäe, 28 August in Haabersti Skatepark, and 3 September in Vabaduse väljak in Kesklinn.

In Männi Park, youngsters can enjoy youth bands and workshops on slackline, outdoor gym and street dance, as well as workshops of TalTech School of Technology. In Tondiraba Park, young people can visit a flea market, take part in workshops organised by international volunteers and offer solutions to local problems together with the Lasnamäe Youth Council. 

At Inglirand, youngsters can try SUP boarding, make sand sculptures, learn beach volleyball and dance Zumba. At the extreme sports event Kopli Session, young BMX and skateboarders of all ages can put their skills to the test.

In Vilde Park, youngsters can learn parkour and take part in various tournaments. The Mustamäe Youth Council will also offer activities.

In Kari Park, young people can take part in a scooter race, science theatre and youth bands. On 27 August, Kivila Park will host a parkour competition, among other events, and there will also be a kiiking event.
