The Boston community plans many events throughout the year aiming to bring people of all nationalities together and mingle, celebrate, learn more about Lithuanian traditions and culture. Everyone is welcome to join our events and we aim to host many events in partnership with other local communities.
Our events are run by our dedicated volunteers to whom we are very thankful for their continuous support.

Take a look at our yearly events that are hosted by our community, we hope it will encourage you to join us next time!

Autumn celebration

Lithuanian traditional celebrations are tied with seasons. Every September we plan Autumn Celebrations that also mark the beginning of new school year and return of students to our supplementary school. This event brings families and children together to mark the end of summer.

Traditional Christmas

Our Traditional Christmas event is the largest event hosted by our community. Every year we welcome over 400 guests who are invited to watch the play prepared by children from our community. Children who are part of our supplementary school, dance and music clubs are invited to perform. The Christmas event is open for everyone to join and our previous guests include other local community groups, Boston Mayor, Boston More In Common Group, Lincolnshire County Council, Lithuanian Ambassadors, and of course Santa also pays a visit with plenty of gifts!

We also invite professional actors and musicians to perform for our community members and the Christmas Event ends with a very fun disco for both parents and children.

The event has attracted a lot of attention of mass and media and was broadcasted on BBC and largest Lithuanian TV networks.

LT Independence Day

It is important for our community to remember our history and teach our youngest members to embrace their roots. On the Lithuanian Independence Day, we remember and celebrate our freedom fighters who have helped Lithuania to become an independent country in 1990.

Pancakes Day

Lithuanian festival that takes place during the seventh week before Easter and it corresponds to Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, and Carnival and marks the end of winter. Our community plans a pancake contest and our members are invited to dress up with traditional masks and participate in celebration by playing games, singing songs. Major element of the holiday meant to symbolize the defeat of winter is a staged battle between Lašininis (“porky”) personifying winter and Kanapinis (“hempen man”) personifying spring. The event culminates in gathering around a big fire and burning of “More”, a creature which represents winter to mark the start of spring.


Did you know that Lithuanians eat actual hard-boiled eggs and not chocolate eggs during Easter? Our community plans a traditional Lithuanian Easter event where all children are invited to participate in an egg hunt. We also host a yearly Easter drawing competition full of prizes and awards!

LT Mother's Day

Lithuanian Mother’s Day takes place every first Sunday of May. To celebrate our wonderful mothers, our community hosts a yearly concert where all children are invited to participate and show what they have learned over the year to their families. It is a tradition for Mothers to receive flowers and other craft gifts from their children.

Goodbye, School!

Our community plans a yearly event to mark the end of the academic year and start of summer holidays. Children and adults who are part of our clubs are awarded certificates for their courses completed. Event entertainers are invited, games are planned, and decorations prepared. Community members, volunteers are also invited to partake in our trips to adventure parks, castles and other wonderful local areas.
