Tuulekala (Wind Fish) Festival

Tuulekala Festival will bring together all those who are constantly facing the sea and those who appreciate good food, dancing, and the stories of fishermen. Guests of the festival can see trolley rigs set up for garfish, select the best dish made from fish, and see who was the most successul fisher. The evening will end with dancing as the band "Untsakad" will perform.
The garfish, whom the people of Hiiumaa call the fish of wind, is an expected guest as each year, with the southwest winds of the spring, it comes here for a short month from the Atlantic to spawn. Its long jaws and green bones make it one of the most unique fish to catch from the Baltic Sea. The arrival of the garfish in Hiiumaa is an event on its own and locals start talking about it at the beginning of May, or earlier.
