THE 9TH CONTEMPORARY CRAFTS FESTIVAL03.08.2019 — 04.08.201910:00 — 17:00

Unlike the traditional ethnographic June Fair, the August Festival invites Latvian craftsmen who apply a wide variety of methods and materials, involving in their production of goods not only crafts skills, but also elements of technology development and modern design. The crafts combine the beautiful with the useful: artistic individuality, crafts skills and mercantile wisdom. The products represented at the festival have to reflect the demand of the modern society for unique products and at the same time to show alternatives to uniform mass products. Guests from the Baltic Sea region will participate in the festival.

Food products and catering services of the festival include modern and creative variations of the traditional Latvian cuisine and cuisine of other nations living in Latvia. A wide choice is available to guests.
