ONION AND FISH DAY
October 2, 2021, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
When the autumn field work and grazing are over, it is time to celebrate properly. Onion and fish day will be part of the harvest day of the Setos and Old Believers. As both communities are famous for their vegetable gardening and fishing skills, there is a fair where you can buy the best Peipsi onions, various fish and other goodies. In the farms you can get acquainted with Peipsiveere and Setu food culture and handicrafts. There is a Seto prayer, followed by a celebration with Seto traditional singing "Leelo" and dances.
