Kuressaare Street Picnic

Saturday, 8th of September | At 18:00 | Center of Kuressaare

Kuressaare street picnic is not disturbed by the building of the town center. The picnic will be held, despite the piles of gravel and tractors…. next to the castle park (along the streets of Allee and Staadion). As usual, we provide a kilometer of tables covered with white tablecloths- delicious dishes, beverages and a pleasant companion comes with You!

When does the picnic take place?
This year you can enjoy the picnic next to the castle park on 8th of September from 6pm to 11pm. At 11 pm is time to end the picnic and head for the afterparties at the local cafes, restaurants and nightclubs.

Where does the picnic take place?
The picnic tables will start from the beginning of Allee Street (main entrance to the Castle) and go along Allee Street until Staadion Street. The whole area will be 500m long and have two parallel rows of tables. It makes altogether about 1km of tables. There will be a break in the row after every tenth table, to guarantee the free movement of people to share great food and experiences.

What to wear?

In anticipation of the status of the European Capital of Culture we have decided to celebrate EV 100 (Estonian Republic 100th birthday) and keep the traditions alive. So we rejoice when You wear traditional folk clothes! If you don´t have a complete set of folk clothes, wear an apron, headwear or anything else that is part of folk clothes. You are also welcome if you don`t have folk items and wear your most comfortable clothes.

Can the kids come?
Of course! Kuressaare street picnic has always been a fun family event, therefore there will be a special area for children. The children’s tent „Pink fairytale“ will be located next to old polyclinic (Alle Street 1) and there is a playground next to café Nautleja (Allee Street 8).

How to book a table?
For bigger groups, who wish to sit together, we offer the possibility to book tables. One table seats 8 people. Tables can be booked until 06.09 by writing to info@visitsaaremaa.ee

How to find your booked table?
The tables have been divided into groups of ten, which are marked with letters in alphabetical order. You will be given a letter and number of the table with the booking.

Plan B: In case of heavy rain, there will be no picnic.
