Summer Music Park
- July 11-17, start at 8 pm (9 pm on Wed)
- St. Petersburg Botanical Garden
- From 1,000 rubles
If you are yet to visit St. Petersburg Botanical Garden, this is your sign! When else are you going to get to listen to cello covers of popular songs and soundtracks (Saturday) or watch a new rendition of Bizet’s Carmen (Sunday) surrounded by nature? If you are eager to go to more events of the festival during the week, you can check out the full program on its official website. Don’t forget to buy your tickets in advance and check the weather forecast to ensure you have the most comfortable experience.
Garage Sail and St. Petersburg Fair
This weekend brings you two opportunities for sustainable shopping. At St. Petersburg Fair (Nikolskiye Ryady), you will get to explore local brands, big and small, and support local businesses by shopping not just for clothing and accessories, but also various delicacies. And if you drop by Sevkabel Port, you will enter the grand Garage Sail (no, this is not a typo). Consider it a treasure hunt among the once-prized possessions – from home decor to vinyl records, books, and clothes – that are looking for their new caring owners. Both events are sure to supply you with a great atmosphere and a relaxing vibe.
Zharit Fest food festival
- July 16-17, 12 pm - 10 pm
- Design District DAA
Zharit is Russian for to roast/to fry, so at this event you can expect to taste a great variety of grilled (and not only) foods, including cheese and produce from local farmers, as well as dishes from many of the city’s restaurants. But it’s not just that – there will also be a stand-up show, a foosball tournament, and other fun contests with pleasant awards. In other words, this will be a true celebration for all the foodies out there.
Concert: European Music. Arias and Sonatas. In Furore
- July 17, 8 pm
- Lutheran Church of St. Michael
- 600 rubles
Finally, here is another musical event for your weekend: this time, you are invited to some classical music inside one of our favorite locales, the Lutheran Church of St. Michael on Vasilievsky Island. This is your chance to expose yourself to some organ music in its “natural habitat,” surrounded by echoey halls of this 19th century cathedral. You can purchase your ticket here.
