The Opinion Festival

Pitched as a “verbal rock festival”, the Opinion Festival is an open-air debating event that encourages public discussions over national and international policy issues. It takes place in mid-August in Paide, a small town in the middle of Estonia.

The festival, inspired by the famous Swedish Almedalsveckan (Almedalen Festival), is organized in cooperation of hundreds of volunteers, NGOs, public sector institutions, political parties, and media.
