Estonia Independence Day
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.
This is one of the largest and most distinctive film events in Northern Europe. The so called A-category festival and its side events screen a rich and diverse programme, introducing carefully selected highlights of the current world cinema. The festival offers a mixture of high quality drama to electrifying genre films, documentaries, and much more.
Make sure you don't miss out!
Music, circus, theatre, and street art. Let yourself be blown away by this amazing combination of arts at TaDaa! Festival. The impressive performances of the artists will make sure you will never forget about the experience. This professional street art performance festival is based in Estonia and Latvia. The 2022 edition is currently being planned. Will it be as fiery as last time?
You can check all information about the festival on their website, as well as the after movie of the last edition.
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.

Call for Youth & Festival’s Best Stories
2022 is the European Year of Youth. Young people deserve the closest attention.

This is why we dedicate this call for stories to them.
