The Centenary of the Republic of Latvia is going to be the biggest event in the history of modern Latvia. More than 800 wide range celebratory events and festivities will take place from May 2017 to January 2021 in Latvia and 70 countries worldwide.
The Celebrations will commemorate the most important events and personalities related to founding and strengthening of the State.
Everyone who calls Latvia home and feels a sense of belonging to this country is invited to participate. We encourage each and every person living in Latvia to contribute their good deeds as gifts to our nation. In anticipation of Latvia’s birthday, we will follow the common birthday rituals of an individual. A festive feeling should enter every home. To achieve this, everyone is invited to take part – individuals, public authorities, municipalities, institutional and non-governmental organizations, enterprises, the Diaspora.
The ideas dedicated to Latvia and corresponding with the goals of the Celebration can be shared to the open calendar of Centenary events on the digital platform http://lv100.lv/en/.
The Celebrations are made to strengthen our current values and to create new lasting values for the future, with particular attention towards the regions, children and youth. Latvia’s cultural space will be nurtured with such projects as Cultural School Bag, National Encyclopaedia, 16 new feature films, several new tourism routes in Latvia, etc
