Celebrate the White Nights of Russia at our free famly festival! Make your own art projects, and enjoy traditional music and dancing!
From late May to early July, the nights are bright in St. Petersburg. During the summer, the sun does not descend below the horizon enough for the sky to grow dark, and the "white nights" become a time to celebrate the classical arts of Russia. Come join us as we celebrate with Russian classics in ballet, music, tea and sweets, and art projects for the entire family.
