Latvian National Day: made for you to taste, enjoy, meet, embrace and explore

Need ideas on how to spend your Saturday? We have good news for you as on 27 November Latvia is organising its National Day which will present plenty of opportunities for you to entertain yourself.

It all starts on 26 November, when you should visit the Latvian Pavilion to try the authentic taste of the Nordic country presented by some of the most prominent chefs of Latvia – Martins Sirmais, Eriks Dreibants and Pavels Skopa. If you are a foodie, you will appreciate the fact that the delicacies will be available there on 27 November as well. Come and taste them!


When introducing Latvia, there’s simply no getting around the fact that music is the best way to know a Latvian truly. This is why you really shouldn’t miss a music show featuring magical folk songs and popular music presented by our beloved musicians – Intars Busulis, Asnate Rancane, Aurelija Rancane and the Abonementa Orchestra. What will make the whole experience even more dazzling? A light show at the very heart of the event – Al Wasl Plaza.

Alongside these events, there will be a Business Forum and other gatherings organised to make new contacts and present the opportunities Latvia is full of.

Please view the programme above to find specific information on event locations.
