Three for the Weekend: Summer is over

It is indeed the final weekend of August. Whether it's back to school or not, there's always that feeling about the end of summer. Make the most of it!

Open-air party in Viesturdārzs

Latvians have a long-established tradition to meet up outdoors for music and dance, the so-called zaļumballe (lit. green party). One exactly like that is hosted in Rīga, Viesturdārzs, on Friday August 26, 19:00 to 23:00. Dance music will be provided by Jakob Noiman Festival Band, and later by chief editor of Satori, Henriks Eliass Zēgners. Refreshments will also be available to cool down between all that dancing.


For the 10th year in a row, summer-farewell urban festival "Ezīšfests" is taking place at the famous pub and restaurant "Ezītis Miglā". This year it takes place August 27-28 at Tallinas Ielas kvartāls (Tallinas Street Square). Several stages and more than 20 musicians, as well as other activities will cater to every taste.
