Hello March, we have been waiting for you! Although we cannot yet guarantee you full-on spring (after all, the Throve Tuesday, our main sledging celebration, falls on March 5 this year), the sun is out and the Tallinn’s cultural scene is blooming. 

Here is our selection of this month’s top events, including concerts, fairs, exhibitions, and much more. For a full list, please check out our culture calendar

Special Events


On Shrove Tuesday (5.03), we say goodbye to winter and start the Lenten period. This means celebrating with delicious hearty food and, most importantly, sledging for good luck: the further you slide the better. 

If you are more of a competitive type, register your team, bring your own sledge and aim for the longest ride at Vimka ski resort’s Shrovetide event in Viimsi (5.03, 10.30-15:00).
