Traditionally held in Vilnius on or around St. Casimir’s Day in the run up to Easter, this is the largest outdoor spring event in the country during the spring months. Lasting three days (from Friday to Sunday) the fair brings together vendors and artisans from throughout the Baltics (and beyond). In the literally hundreds of stalls you’ll find a universe of hand-made wares on offer, from dried meats and fish, to hand woven baskets, traditional amber jewelry, hand thrown pottery, leather ware, and even painting. Very specific to the fair is the verba, a traditional decorative Easter frond that is woven from dried grasses and adorned with dried flowers and ferns. One of the most popular events of the spring calendar, you’ll find thousands of Lithuanians thronging from all over the country, as well as travelers from further afield, making it a great place to get a feel for the culture and its people. And if you have a gourmet’s palate, or are just looking to try the local cuisine, you’ll find lots of street vendors serving local dishes and local (delicious and micro-brewed) beer.
