A United Church of God Feast of Tabernacles site
There is a new festival location for the 2023 Feast of Tabernacles in Eastern Europe! Join us in Tallinn, Estonia, for an all-inclusive Feast experience. Tallinn is the capital and most populous city of Estonia. Situated on the shores of the Baltic Sea, Tallinn has a population of over 400,000. Tallinn has a major airport with airline connections to Helsinki (Finland), Stockholm (Sweden), Oslo (Norway), Frankfurt (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands) and other European cities.
The venue this year is the Centennial Hotel Tallinn, where services will be held. The hotel rooms include an upscale buffet breakfast. There will be group dinners plus an opening night reception that accommodates the Church’s dietary needs. We have agreed with the Centennial Hotel that we will eat all of our evening meals as a group in their restaurant.
Car rental is not necessary with the use of taxis and Bolt (like Uber or Lyft) and public transportation. Other restaurants as well as shopping and tourist sites are within walking distance. Of special interest is the nearby 13th century Tallinn Old Town—a Medieval city. Walking tours with many shops and museums are popular attractions. A private tour of Tallinn for all festival attendees is planned.
Language is not a problem, as most people are able to communicate in English. The use of the Google Translate app on a smart phone is quite helpful for reading the Estonian language—especially the camera function that allows visitors to read signs, menus and ingredients in their native languages.
Services are held in the Motivation Room at Centennial Hotel Tallinn. The first service will be held at Friday, Sept. 29 at 7:00 p.m. Following the opening evening service there will be a meet-and-greet reception with hors d’oeuvres. The first Holy Day service will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30. Daily church services during the Feast are also held at the Centennial. Church services on the Day of Atonement and the Sabbath prior to the Feast of Tabernacles will also be at the Centennial Hotel.
The medieval Old Town Tallinn is just 0.8 miles (a 15-minute walk) from the Centennial Hotel.

A tour of sites around Tallinn is planned.
There are no travel restrictions anticipated.
