A Kilometre of Culture on Freedom Street


The “Great Stage of a Kilometre of Culture” will be set up between Elizabetes iela and Dzirnavu iela to entertain the runners and the fans alike, where the most popular Latvian musicians will be performing hit songs written from 1914 to 2014. The runners will be cheered on by songs in Latvian, Russian, English and other languages. Most people will recognise them instantly, the songs that were the favourites of our grandmothers, fathers, ourselves and now also our children.

Project description:

The annual Nordea Riga Marathon is part of the European Capital of Culture Programme this year, and will take place on the 18th of May. This time, the marathon route has been altered to also include Brīvības iela and “A Kilometre of Culture on Freedom Street” – a special programme of culture, music and singing on Brīvības iela during the marathon. This year’s marathon is hoping to surprise the runners and the spectators, presenting the main street of Riga from a different cultural and historic viewpoint.
