Mikelis Day Fair in Old Town Riga

Mikelis Day is celebrated during the autumn solstice, when the sun turns towards winter - this is the time when daytime and nighttime is the same length and the astronomical autumn sets in. To this occasion, a Mikelis Day market will be organised, and a stage programme with songs and dances will add to the atmosphere.

This is an important time of the year for farmers, when the most important jobs have been completed before winter and it is time to celebrate the harvest. Market squares will be full of Latvian grown pumpkins, apples, pears, cranberries, cowberries and much more. The ladies of the house will be offering homemade jams, cheeses, traditional pastries and home-basked bread. Everyone will be able to enjoy and purchase fresh honey, as well as smoked meats and fish. Meanwhile, local craftsmen will also be on hand offering traditional and contemporary linens, ceramics, jewelry, wooden items and much, much more.
