World Beer Parade


The World Beer Parade, part of the “Riga 2014 Solstice” festivities, will give the visitors an opportunity to taste and compare a great variety of beer brands from Latvia, Europe and the world. Latvians will surely know and appreciate a good deal of them, but the other part will only be known to the true beer aficionados. During the World Beer Parade, beer brewers, sellers and pubkeepers will be able to share their experience of the beer brands most popular with customers, whereas parade visitors will have a chance to taste and vote for the best beer brands. The World Beer Parade will take place in the territory of the Mežaparks Grand Stage on the 21st and 22nd of June from 12 noon to 10 p.m.
