Home café days in the ring of light around Dobele, Tērvete and Auce on September 25 and 26

Dobele, Tērvete and Auce are in the green centre of Latvia, locations among Jelgava, Saldus and Tukums.  Lithuanians to the South are our nearest neighbours.  Our advantage is that various ring roads that are not particularly crowded easily allow us to travel to Vidzeme, Latgale, Sēlija and Kurzeme.  The spite of Semigallians and their desire to live in their fatherland are quite strong here.  We have lovely estates, castles, hillocks which we proudly call mountains, as well as locations that are full of legends and stories.  We have our lakes, rivers, forests, rich fields of grain and carefully tended meadows.  This is a sacred place for lilac in the spring, the capital city of apples in the autumn, and the place where noble snowmen gather during the winter.  That is Dobele on the banks of the Bērze River.  Tērvete is a true land of fairy tales and miracles, where guests who walk along the trails of the park will find wooden fairy tale characters, including the Little Forest Witch, the Forest Mother, the Elf Mother and others.  Auce is a growing, creative and talented place, and the only town in Latvia which has its own name's day.  We live under the blue skies of Latvia in our ring of light around Dobele, Tērvete and Auce.  We'll welcome you during Home café days under the ring of light!

7 home cafés will welcome guests in the Dobele Administrative District.

All events can be found under "Home Cafés" or on the "Map" (in Latvian).

► What are "Home Café Days"?
The yards of farms and other places that are not linked to dining and accommodations on a daily basis will turn into cafés for a day or two.  Guests will be able to taste local foods to learn new flavours, as well as to enjoy an interesting cultural programme.  Each farm has families and/or friends who will prepare a special offer -- flatbreads, cakes, casseroles etc. to be served with tea or coffee.  Each farm will present the name of its café, and the products will be served with characteristic cultural characteristic and stories.  There will also be various cultural activities such as handicrafts, games, playing of musical instruments, etc.
