Spasskaya Tower Festival
August 23 - September 1
Red Square Red Square

Spasskaya Tower is a music fiesta, a spectacular show, staged on the background of the monumental walls of the Kremlin, and a great ‘battlefield’ of the bands from different countries fighting for the love and admiration of the audience. The harmonious combination of military, classical, folk and popular music, military band parades and dance shows, laser and pyrotechnical effects makes the Festival one of the brightest and most memorable events of the year.

The Festival is held annually on Red Square. At Spasskaya Tower everyone can find something to their liking: some people like clear, well-adjusted movements of military men, while others enjoy live orchestral music or cultural exchange with people from other nations. Children are also welcome: for them the Festival has prepared a number of master classes and a horse show. The audiences will also enjoy a lighting show projected to the St. Basil’s Cathedral; each night the event will close with majestic fireworks.

August 23 to September 1, the public will also daily enjoy the Children Playground and the Horse show.

The Spasskaya Tower for Children is a unique project offering you and your children breathtaking and vivid emotions. Seven topic-related locations will be open onsite of the Children Playground featuring a stage, historical, artistic, music, patriotic and military pavilions, offering various master classes, quests and competitions for the whole family.

The best horse show, the visiting card of which is the joint team of the Cavalry honorary escort of the Presidential Regiment and the Kremlin School of Riding. The riders of the team perfectly master different types of traditional Cossack weapons, perform the most complicated stunts on horses, masterly demonstrating the techniques of jiggling.
