The abstract summarizes the results of the poll carried out in 2012 about the events in the biggest Lithuanian cities. In total, 117 respondents residing in the biggest Lithuanian cities have been polled. While talking about the common traditional features of city festivals, the respondents highlighted the variety of concerts, traditional places and the continuity (on the annual basis). Identical feasts that are organized in different cities are not evaluated favourably – only solitary respondents attend state or calendar holidays. City birthdays did not draw much attention as well, although they were indicated as being important for a city. Massive events characteristic for a particular city, such as Hanza Dienos in Kaunas or the Sea Festival in Klaipėda, were evaluated the best. KEY WORDS: City Festivals, Events, Tradition.
