Festival Description

The festival began in 1934 as a way to glorify the sea, and to strengthen the status of Lithuania as a sea state in the world, to encourage the development of Lithuanian fleet. Since 2000, the concept of organizing the Sea Festival was widely expanded to include the city of Klaipeda and all of Lithuania’s artistic forces. The city, country, and business representatives actively participate in advertising the festival as it continues to expand and grow. The event reached its culmination in 2002 when the town of Klaipeda celebrated its 750th anniversary. The Sea Festival invites the locals and city guests to enjoy more than 100 events, in which over 600 singers and bands were involved.

Festival Dates July 24 - 28, 2013
