The tradition of Song Celebrations goes back to the year 1869, when male choirs and brass bands came together to celebrate being Estonian. Modern Song and Dance Celebrations include all types of choirs and national dance groups. In the last Song and Dance Celebration in 2009 34 000 performers participated and performed before an audience of 200 000.
The Song and Dance Celebrations unite the folk and celebrate being Estonian. Taking place only every 5 years, they are a special event not to be missed.
