The Summer Garden is one of the favourite places in St. Petersburg and it constantly attracts many citizens and tourists. It was founded during the reign of Peter I and is a part of the complex of objects of the Russian Museum. This year in honour of its anniversary the festival "The Summer Garden — 315" will be held from 14 to 16 June 2019.

Guests of the festival will see theatrical sketches, excerpts from performances, historical reconstructions of dances and boardwalks. The alleys of the garden will be filled with sounds of live music of the XYIII-XXI centuries performed by famous orchestras and musicians, as well as young artists. Every day of the festival from 12 to 21 hours visitors will enjoy a marathon of cultural events.

 According to the old tradition, wind orchestras are going to delight the public during these three days.
