History of Kaziukas Fair

After the canonisation of the Grand Duke Casimir (Lith. Kaziukas) in the first part of the 17th century, the construction of St. Casimir’s Jesuit Church began in Vilnius. It was the first Baroque sanctuary in the city. On the day of the Saint’s death, 4 March, St. Casimir’s Day started to be mentioned. To mark this occasion, a huge fair of craftspeople and farmers was organised every year after St. Casimir Day mass.

As a result of different historical events, several editions of the fair were forced to relocate to various parts of the city: The Cathedral Square, Lukiškės, even Kalvarijų market. In the times of Independence, the fair returned to Vilnius city centre, stretching to the four corners of the city. In its present form, the fair extends many kilometres along the streets of the Old Town, squares and yards.
