STREET MUSIC DAY

On the first Saturday in May thousands of people go out to the streets to play music. Street Musician Day is the event which unites all who speak the worlds most universal language - the language of music. In response to the invitation from musician and actor Andrius Mamontovas, professional and amateur musicians flood into the streets, yards, parks and squares of Vilnius. Armed with a variety of musical instruments, they play rock, classics, jazz, avant-garde and folklore and beat African rhythms. On this day all Lithuanian cities and towns engage into the fest of free creation and socializing between musicians and the public.
In 2008, Street Musician Day erupted all across Lithuania with more than 3,000 musicians playing in the capital and 31 other cities and towns. Street Musician Day in 2009 will involve Lithuanians living all over the world playing jazz, rock, classics, rhythms and folk music out on the streets.

INTERNATIONAL FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL "PARBĖG LAIVELIS"

The international folklore festival Parbeg laivelis is one of the largest celebrations of ethnic culture in Western Lithuania. It is arranged every second year in the port city Klaipeda. Its characteristic feature is the attention to authenticity.

Performers from different Lithuanian regions and abroad are invited to the festival. They dance, sing and participate at evening-parties and processions. Demonstrative workshops of crafts, different exhibitions, presentations of food and kitchen traditions of different nations and specific Klaipeda regional fairs are arranged during this folklore festivity.

Water is the axis of the massive folklore festivity; that is why the events of the festival usually move from ordinary stages and squares to the waterfront. Concerts are held near the river Dane or right in it, in the waters of the Curonian Bay, onboard the moored ships in the quays. Parbeg laivelis is listed in the festival calendar of the international folk-art organization CIOFF under UNESCO.
