Latvia’s 100th Anniversary, and Song and Dance Festival!


In 2018 Latvia, where Dokumeds has its head office,  will be celebrating its 100 years anniversary. It means a lot for a small country like Latvia, and the celebration will take place over 5 years, starting from 2017 till 2021!  Our neighbors, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland also celebrate their 100 year anniversaries this year.

For a whole week in the summer 2018 Riga will be taken over by the most grandiose festival in Latvia – the "Latvian Song and Dance Festival" gathering tens of thousands of singers and dancers from everywhere in Latvia, and all over the world. With its quality and diversity, this festival  is a unique event on a world scale; therefore it has been included in the UNESCO list of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

The XXVI Latvian Song and XVI Dance Celebration is taking place in Riga from 30 June to 8 July 2018 in the spirit of the Latvian Centenary. Along with the Song Festival there will be many various activities in Riga – folk art fairs, amateur theatre performances and popular music concerts.

Some of our employees will be taking part in this festival as singers and dancers. Following the Latvian tradition, we wish them success, courage, and a true enjoyment from every moment!
