Community Festival “I Know Where My Food Comes From“


I Know Where My Food Comes From – Rõuge Community Festival

We’ve all heard the saying: you are what you eat! The people of Rõuge are well aware of this fact but want to know more, and they are excited to share their knowledge and local flavours with others.

On 9 September 2023, at the initiative of Rõuge rural municipality, a community food festival will take place in Rõuge primeval valley, or Ööbikuorg (Nightingale Valley). With a focus on local and organic food, the day will be packed with lectures by Tartu World University, workshops, discussions and an exciting cultural programme. There will also be a bustling marketplace.

The community festival will detail the developments of the food industry, both locally and globally.

Date: 9 September 2023

Location: Rõuge, Võru county
