Every year, one day in the month of May, Miera Street is closed to traffic for its special festival featuring live music, performances, games&attractions, an arts&crafts fair, various workshops. On nearby Aristida Briāna Street, at the cafe/night club Piens (Latvian: milk), summertime brings its festival (usually on a Sunday) for outdoor concerts, refreshing milkshakes and new friends.
A new and already-popular addition to the quarter – right next to Piens, is the 9kl Arts Centre, just a few doors from the micro-brewery Labietis, with its very own brands made from unusual ingredients.
Meanwhile, at Miera 22, it’s the Chocolate Museum at the Laima Confectionary with its unique interactive exhibit. A bit farther ahead is another venue for artistic endeavors – the territory of the former tobacco factory (Tabakas fabrika).
Still forward, within walking distance, is Lielie kapi - the former mayoral cemetery (late 18th century), now resting place for many celebrities.
