For almost a week in the middle of November, the festival of light “Staro Riga” (Beaming Riga) will be a feast for the eyes with surprising and technically-creative urban environment installations by European and Latvian artists.

This year brings the sixth edition of “Staro Riga”, the largest festival of light in Northern Europe (November 15-18).

On the festival’s homepage, “Staro Riga” organizers will invite the public to vote for their most favorite installation. All votes will be counted on the final day of the festival to determine the best.

The theme this year is an invitation to tell “six stories of joy”, thus presenting the six thematic lines of the 2014 European Capital of Culture program of Riga.

"Staro Riga" is organized by foundation “Rīga 2014”. The festival is part of the 2014 European Capital of Culture events.
