Zagare Fringe Festival

08 May 2025 - 11 May 2025
Žagarė, Lithuania

The Zagare Fringe Festival, being part of both the Baltic Nordic Fringe Network and the World Fringe Network (approx. 300 festivals worldwide), has already taken place on 5 occasions, in 2015, 2017, 2019, a one-off Fringe Day in 2022, and the latest full Festival in May 2023.

The Zagare Fringe Festival acknowledges and celebrates the fact that music, theatre and the arts are so valuable in their ability to reach across language, political and geographical borders, and bring whole communities together on a journey of discovery and enrichment.

The town of Zagare is a small Northern Lithuanian town on the Latvian border, with a current population of approx. 1300, rich in history, located amongst beautiful nature, and with an emerging international and artistic community integrating into the future footprint of the town.

The Festival provides a unique and exploratory platform for contemporary culture to inspire and develop in this welcoming small-town environment by presenting a weekend of events, featuring a variety of artistic activities, concerts, performances, exhibitions and educational workshops covering a wide range of genres. It breaks down the barrier that usually left contemporary culture in the urban domain, and brings it into a rural area, reaching, inviting and touching a new audience, and providing a fresh outlook for artists alike.
