Because everyone in Kaunas already knows about the Courtyard Festival, you already know what you’ll be doing on May 20th! The Courtyard Festival has become a traditional event to foster community-building and friendship among people living in the city of Kaunas and the surrounding region, and also an opportuni-ty to celebrate International Neighbours’ Day. Event participants – communities, organizations, and neighbours – bring their chairs and tables to the city centre and set them with white tablecloths and flowers. The longest of these tables, a line stretching from the Kaunas “Soboras” (St. Michael) Church all the way down to City Hall Square in Old Town, symbolizes the friendship and unity of the city’s people and neighbours. The event is also marked by music played in the most unexpected places, as well as different creative installations and performances.
