Latvian Nationwide Song and Dance Celebration

Friday, June 30 until Sunday, 9 July 2023


The Song and Dance Celebration in Latvia has been a cultural tradition since 1873, when once every five years, Riga becomes a stage for a celebration that unites the nation.


From the first festival in 1873 with 1,000 singers, it has grown to a mighty movement: around 40,000 participants are preparing to take part in the XXVII Nationwide Song and XVII Dance Festival. More than 1,600 groups in Latvia and more than 100 elsewhere are preparing for the event.


A show that is so strong that the Song and Dance Celebration in Latvia is included in the UNESCO List of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity since 2008. It’s also considered to be one of the best festivals in the Baltic region.
