The Inland Waters Festival is part of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 main program.

Date: 29.06-10.07.2024

Lake Peipsi: 29.06-5.07
River Emajõgi / Tartu: 6.07-7.07
Lake Võrtsjärv: 6.07-10.07

To highlight the importance of Lake Peipsi and Lake Võrtsjärv even more, a 12-day inland waters adventure is organized on the two large lakes and the Emajõgi River, which connects them.

The 12-day inland waters adventure is supported by events in various landing spots and ports. Workshops, competitions, and concerts are organized, and regional dishes are prepared and tasted.

Historical ships – Lodi on Lake Peipsi and kale on Lake Võrtsjärvi – are sailing at the head of the festival, and they will come together in a joint water parade in Tartu. All boat owners and submariners can join the historic ships by pre-registration.
