Estonia Independence Day

Ophelie De Backer - 24 Feb 2022

On 24 February 1918, the Republic of Estonia was founded and declared independent. This day, the country celebrates its 104 years of independency.

However, Independence Day isn’t the only day in the year Estonians like to celebrate. As arts and culture have always played a highly important role in Estonia, we listed some festivals that take place in 2022.

Tallinn fringe

Tallinn Fringe

You might know this festival under their previous name “Boom Chicka Wau Wau”. It started out as a collective of circus, theatre, dance, music, and fire performers, who were each performing their own show and co-creating to produce unique performances. If all this does not make you go “Boom Chicka WOW”, I don’t know!

This year they will perform under the more easy to market, Tallinn Fringe Festival Umbrella.
