Winter Solstice and fair "Savour the Flavour at Valmiermuiža"

Date: 
16.12.2017
Time: 
11:00 - 15:00

During the Winter Solstice local craftsmen from far and wide will gather in Valmiermuiža to offer real countryside goods to the visitors of the fair.

Since ancient times Latvians have set up richly served tables to celebrate Winter Solstice. Pig snout, grey peas, bacon rolls, beer – nothing was missing.

They say you have to eat a lot of peas during Christmas to have lots of money. Therefore, Valmiermuiža will gather local producers from all around Latvia, offering homemade bread, cheese, smoked goods, lamprey, honey, herbal teas, spices, mulled wine, juice, candied fruit, hard candy, gingerbread cookies and lots more.

Goods made by local craftsmen will be excellent presents for your beloved ones – jewellery with Latvian symbols, woollen socks, mittens, crochets, hammered work, wooden toys.

The fair and celebration “Savour the Flavour at Valmiermuiža” is held eight times a year, honouring Latvian annual customs.
