Throughout the day, more than sixty booths will showcase Europe’s unique heritage, vibrant culture, tourism and educational opportunities, and distinctive charms. Visitors will be able to taste Europe through many authentic European products on display. Musicians and performers will bring the richness of Europe’s heritage to the eyes and ears of the Mongolian audience with live music and cultural exhibitions.
EU Ambassador Nicaise comments on the event: “What better way could there be to celebrate Europe Day in Mongolia? We are very pleased to bring a day of authentic cultures, experiences, and products from Member States of the European Union to Mongolia’s capital city for our Mongolian friends to experience. With this unique festivity we hope to build stronger ties between Europe and Mongolia and celebrate our long and rich histories together. Visitors will also be able to discover what the EU is doing in Mongolia by visiting the various projects funded by the EU.”
Young visitors to the event will also receive a special souvenir “EU Passports.” After collecting a stamp from booths, the visitors will receive a small gift to mark the end of their “journey around Europe.” This year’s event will also be expanded online through livestreaming so that visitors from all over Mongolia can join the rich European cultures throughout the day.
