Today began international rural fair Maamess. Watch a video on how a 60,000 square meter fair was set up.
Maamess began today and is open till Saturday. The preparatory works, however, started couple of weeks ago.
Maamess takes over 60 000 square metres of space and exhibitions are both in indoor and outdoor space. In addition to Tartu fair centre’s stationary A-,B- and C-halls there are also D-, E- (animals tent) and F-hall (market tent) and also an Show Arena.
You will be helped by:
1) Maamess scheme, what you can find in Maamess official catalogue and on plans set up in information.
2) Road signs set up on the crossing points. There are 7 wider roads in outside space (Pargi tee, Ringtee, Metsatee, Kesktee, Galerii tee, Suur Ring, Aianduse tee) and 8 narrower roads (Sihi 1, Sihi 2, Sihi 3, Sihi 4, Sihi 5, Metsa Põik, Farmi tee, Tehnika tee).
3) Information workers who can be found in A-hall information spot and in information spot located in the middle of fair grounds.
4) Organizers and volunteers who can be recognized by clothes with Maamess symbolics and reflective vests.
The most comfortable way to come to Maamess is to use public transport – nr 6, 8, 16, 16A and 20 stop in “Tartu Näitused” bus stop. Public transport can be also used to get from train station directly to fair centre.
Lux Express buses (from Tallinn to Tartu) also stop in “Tartu Näitused”.
Fair centre’s parking lot is only for exhibitors. Visitors can park in “Laululava” parking lots, where parking is for free. From there to Maamess is a 5-minute walk.
We recommend for groups to come by bus – parking for them is near the Maamess entrance.
During Maamess you have to consider heavy traffic in Betooni and Kreutzwaldi street. Traffic congestions may occur! Please follow the instructions of traffic regulators and look for traffic signs.

Tartu Fairs Centre, 20-22 April. This year MAAMESS marks an anniversary, taking place for the 25th time!
45 000 visitors, 460 companies from 10 countries, 60 000 m2 of exhibition space - these characteristics describe Maamess the best. Fair is organised by Tartu Fairs Ltd.
We are happy to note that agricultural exhibition tradition that started in 1992 is still going strong and MAAMESS has become the biggest fair is Estonia, merging 4 different fairs over time:
XXV International Agricultural Exhibition
XXIII International Timber Processing & Forestry Exhibition
XXIII Food Fair
XIX Gardening Exhibition
The high quality of MAAMESS is confirmed by its membership of EURASCO, the organisation uniting the largest agricultural exhibition organisers in Europe, and by its successful cooperation with fairs in neighbouring countries that are dedicated to agriculture and rural life. I sincerely believe jubilee fair to be meaningful and productive.
Reservation of floor space has already started and we are glad to see exhibitors from previous years making a comeback alongside the new companies joining in!
To take part in MAAMESS, please fill in the registration form and send it to the organiser.
Welcome to Tartu!
See you at Maamess!
