St. Petersburg Fair

With leaves changing their color, there’s nothing more wholesome than a fall fair. Bundle up, grab your favorite beverage, and head to the one and only St. Petersburg Fair happening this weekend at Kirov Palace of Culture. It is a one-stop shop for all things festive and yummy. Don’t miss your chance to check out a unique collection of handmade pieces – from hand-crafted jewelry and decorative ceramics to indoor items and gourmet foods from all over the world – and what’s more, embrace your inner artist and create something with your hands. The fair will hold various workshops where you can learn how to make a candle from scratch or clay vases or bottles on a pottery wheel.

Scary Fairy Tales by Nicoletta Ceccoli

Ring in October with Halloween-like vibes from the modern-day artist and illustrator Nicoletta Ceccoli (if you’re not scared). The Scary Fairy Tales exhibition takes you into the secret life of her doll-like characters representing beauty and youth perfectly combined with darkness and disturbance. This will make you think again about the fairytales you grew up with.
