Midsummer Day at the Estonian Open Air Museum

‘New beginnings’
Midsummer Day has been one of the most important and joyful holidays for Estonians throughout the ages. On Midsummer Day, the nature is full of power and people make bonfires to celebrate the beginning of summer and attract good luck. Estonians have made bonfires on Midsummer Day regardless of the weather or ruling regime, both in good and bad times.
In 2019, the Midsummer Day at the Estonian Open Air Museum will take its guests to three breakthrough years that have marked the beginning of something new. First, we will look into a village party in 1869 when the male choir of the township is preparing to go to the first Song Festival in Tartu. Then, we will learn about the charity event organised in 1919 to support the warriors injured in the War of Independence. Lastly, we will celebrate Midsummer Day as they did in 1995 – everything was for sale!
Performers include Untsakad, The Tuberkuloited, Nancy, Lüü-Türr, Pritsu Brass, and Leigarid!
