25th Estonian Song Festival

Date of Issue : 18 June 2009

The tradition of All-Estonian song festivals was born in 1869, when the first such festival took place in Tartu from 18 to 20 June. This year's festival is the 25th, and 140 years will pass since the first festival this year.

By today the Baltic Song and Dance festivals, including those of Estonia, have won wide acclaim and belong to the list of UNESCO Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity
