Fairy Tale Garden
Once upon a long time ago, in a beautiful Hanseatic town, right on the foot of the hill there was a nice neighbourhood – Country Town. And in that Country Town there was a wondrous garden named Fairy Tale Garden. At all times, all kinds of fairy tales could be heard and characters from the tales seen there. All who were fond of fairy tales, be they big or small, from near or far, were welcome at the garden.

Tartu Shelter for Homeless Animals
Assisi Franciscus Society celebrates its fifth birthday this June. It has served as a home for 4,560 cats, 2,927 dogs and 100 small animals and birds during that time. Of them, 2,203 cats, 2,568 dogs and 90 small animals or birds have found new homes or gone back to their own homes (and currently the shelter hosts 78 cats and 37 dogs). Since this May, all cats and dogs leave us with a chip attached so that their owners could be more easily identified if necessary and that most of them would arrive back at their homes. I wish that people would always have eyes to notice, hands to help and a heart to care, for every life deserves living.
Tartu County Central Association for Folk Culture
The Association’s folklore circle’s folk music lessons on the Country Town stage.
Taivi Raudsepp’s National Costumes
22 years of making national costumes have brought me to a state of tension. I work like crazy, but luckily, a side affair has produced the book “Bound by National Costumes”. Interested readers will find out where their roots are and what their area’s national costumes are like.
The Uhti Tavern’s workshops offer the experience of smith and clay. Children may get their fingers dirty, painting jolly faces on clay statues. We will set a table on which we offer Uhti bread and drink, with pickled cucumber on the side. When everything has been eaten, the tables and chairs, too, will be put on sale.
