"We invite everyone to experience the rich cultural landscape of Ida-Virumaa.

Folk culture highlights will be presented by cultural collectives from both Estonian and various minority communities from Jõhvi, Kohtla-Järve, and Alutaguse municipalities.

Engaging Estonian folk music will be performed by Alutaguse folk musicians, while Ida-Virumaa Belarusian Society's choir BEZ and Alutaguse Hobby Center's ensemble Kalina Krasnaja will offer joyful singing.

From heart to heart, Kohtla-Järve Ukrainian Society's band Perelaz will sing and play, and Ida-Virumaa Ingrian-Finnish Society's dance group Metsakukat will provide dance enjoyment.

All collectives actively participate in local, county, and nationwide events, including the annual cultural festival 'Cultural Melting Pot of Nations,' which takes place in Jõhvi in September to celebrate International Day of Peace."
