Mikelis Day fair
Miķelis Day is the Autumn Solstice, when the sun turns towards winter, and day and night are the same length. This is an important point in a farmer's daily rhythm, as the most important chores are finished and activity in fields slowly dies down.
Every year, various annual fairs take place throughout Latvia on Miķelis Day, where local farmers sell their products to hungry city slickers. The fairs are a joyous event, which also gather local craftsmen and musicians, as many various events are also organized throughout the day.
