Karmoškateek
Every day on the Freedom Square

Karmoškateek (garmonteque) is a meeting place for everyone who has caught the garmon bug so that they can enjoy playing music together. We host joint performances and workshops where professionals tell it like it is, teach songs and show you what’s inside the bear’s belly. Everyone is welcome regardless of their skill level or choice of instrument - the ones who are more proficient will lead and we’ll be able to find you garmon!
The schedule for workshops and joint performances will be revealed on site.

Sunset spring hike
FRI 29.07 at 20.00, starts in front of the Kondas Center

The hike takes you to the springs of Viljandi. We talk about water and taste the water. We undertake a few simple spring water testing experiments. The festival theme is “Roots and treetops” which gives us a lot to talk about during our hike. We talk about how the springs often flow from underneath the roots and the tree of life with its life below the roots and above the treetop. We visit the Taevaskoda of Viljandi and do a few other things if the weather allows. The spring hike lasts until sunset. The hike is guided by the man of nature Peep Tobreluts.


Midnight hike
SAT 30.07 at 01.00 - on the second festival night after the Friday programme has ended, starts in front of the Kondas Center

The hike starts at 1 o’clock during the night when it’s dark because the moon is young and only starlight brightens the skies. We walk through the sleepy town, exploring the new in the old town. We look at roofs and chimneys, treetops and stars. The hike is guided by the man of nature Peep Tobreluts. NB! For safety reasons, we can only allow 15 people to join the hike and underage participants are only allowed if accompanied by an adult. Get there early to guarantee a spot!
