Invitation to Enjoy Events

“The commemoration of our city’s birthday serves as a reminder of our glorious history. Kaunas is a city by the water, therefore, it’s no coincidence that we plan its main festivities along the banks of the Nemunas and the Neris rivers. We will celebrate for three days. We will take care of the entertainment, and all that Kaunas residents and guests need to bring is a good mood. All events are free of charge,” Kaunas Mayor Visvaldas Matijošaitis says, extending the invitation to the celebration.

Among the highlights, the Childhood Meadow, nestled on the banks of the Nemunas River within Kaunas Santaka Park. Attendees can indulge in picnics, recreational games, musical performances, and designated dance areas. Children will delight in meeting various characters while nearby, the Kakė Makė trampoline park awaits. They can enjoy colourful kite flying, mini-football tournaments, diverse educational activities, a karaoke space, and delectable treats.
