Long live the festival!

Karosta festival have been held in Karosta since 1919. In festival we offer art, music, diverse activities for families and children, as well as an old-timer car show.

Festival usually takes place at the beginning of June, and the works of art created during the festival can be viewed in Karosta throughout the summer. Every year at the Karosta festival, a new place of cultural interest is "opened". Festival started in Redan, which has already become one of Karosta's magnets. For a stable value, the artist's workshop opened in Karosta water tower, which is traditionally open during the Karosta festival and in the summer, becomes a place of work and a home for prominent Latvian artists.
Since 2022, Lights festivals have also been held in Karosta
