The traditional extreme sports festival held at Pärnu Beach will once again bring together surfers and those people who simply love the sea and the wind.

Various bands and DJs will provide entertainment on the beach.

Good Food Festival – Grillfest
Pärnu International Opera Music Festival
The festival originated as the Klaudia Taevi International Young Opera Singers Competition that is still one of the main events of the festival today. The greatest crowd-pleaser is the original opera production. In addition to the opera production there are also various concerts, master classes and film screenings. The festival was created to provide young opera singers with an opportunity to develop their art and to expose the younger generations to opera.
The Day of Pärnu
Pärnu has always celebrated its birthday, but Pärnu Day was organised 2011 to celebrate the 760th birthday of Pärnu. This has become a day for our people and the birthday of a great town. Pärnu Day is filled with entertainment and it introduces the history of the town, our “stuff” and has fun events for the entire family. We welcome both locals and visitors from out of town!
