Home café days "Created in the Heart of Latvia," Ķekava Administrative District (Ķekava-Baldone-Daugmale-Baloži)

People have forever been looking for new ideas about how to create things and grow.  People in the Ķekava Administrative District create new products, tastes and companies.  The new administrative district is like the heart of Latvia on the banks of the Daugava River, where people can find peace in quiet corners of nature and enjoy offers in active administrative district centres.  The culture and history of the tourism offer interweave with the peace and harmony of nature.  Residents and guests can relax on the coasts of the local lakes and rivers, hike down forest trail, enjoy active leisure with bicycles, boats or hikes, look into history and discover true jewels of architecture.

During home café days, guests will have a chance to visit experienced flavour masters in the administrative district, as well as new ones.  The Ķekava Administrative District is just a hop and a skip from Rīga, and lots of people flow through it every day.  Still, there are lots of places that are close and unknown, and that means that during café days, you will be able to visit creators of flavours in Ķekava, Baldone, Baloži and Daugmale right next to Rīga.

14 home cafés will welcome guests during "Home Café Days" in the Ķekava Administrative District from September 17-19.

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.
