On 4-6 June, Daugavpils will celebrate its 735th anniversary.

This year, major event of the City days will be Latgalian song festival which was first held 70 years ago.

Choires from all over Latvia will perform in Daugavpils. Before their performance, they will take part in the common parade along the Rigas street. After official opening of the festival, the choires will continue to perform at Stropu state (Stropu Estrade). City days will bring together musicians, artists, actors, dancers and craftsmen from various countries.

This year is also a 200th anniversary of the Daugavpils fortress. Because of the upcoming restoration of the fortress which is to begin in summer, most events will take place in the city centre, at the Vienibas square near the Unity House which has recently been renovated. Festivities will end with the fireworks at the Daugava bank.
