When we return to the city from the shore, the lakes, our homesteads, and our tents, all tan and recharged, we dive head first into culture. Our cities reverberate with theatre and good music, and the galleries open their doors wide open to show the fine works that were created during the summer. Autumn is a time for culture, and in autumn, culture goes out into the streets – it is colourful, and it takes your breath away. It opens your eyes and your feelings, and becomes ingrained in your experience, setting the joy of creativity free. Let’s surrender to it with the best events.
After resting from all the cars in summer, flirting with tourists at night, and getting back all of the locals who were away on holiday, Vilnius celebrates a new season on the first weekend of September. The traditional Vilnius City Fiesta invites the capital’s locals and guests to spend some time together. To talk a walk together down the buzzing Gediminas Avenue, to meet up with friends on Arts and Music Street, to get together on Book Boulevard or buy gifts on Tasty Souvenir Road, to dive into culinary experiences on the bank of the Neris between Mindaugas Bridge and the Green Bridge, or to view the traditional Vilnius City Fiesta video projection. Once your legs are warmed up, pay a tribute to the soul with jazz music or the touching sound of guitar, a noisy rock concert or a great DJ performance. Take your pick!
