• From 19 to 21 September,
    the city will be filled with millions of colours
    and the festival ‘Wandering Lights 2018’ will begin.

    Wandering Lights festival will this year focus on Tallinn city parks, green areas and the surrounding of city space. Thirteenth festival will last for three days starting from the Kadriorg Park from 19th to 20th September and will continue to Tallinn Old Town with lighting installations and concerts from 20th to 21st of September. Furthermore, over sixty installations make up a light chain in the heart of the city, giving you the opportunity to discover exciting objects and the exciting elements of the city space.

    The wonderful feature of light is to illuminate the road and show the direction – the festival looks to the future, opens the gates of the city parks and green spaces and illuminates the roads between them. Come along with light!

    The 2018 festival is dedicated to the Kadriorg 300 and Estonia 100 anniversaries.
