A hundred-meter-long "centennial" table with only Lithuanian products on the menu will be arranged in the capital's Rotušės (Town Hall) Square on Saturday and Sunday.

The traditional annual fair of Lithuanian folk arts and crafts this year spreads across 17 kilometers of streets in Vilnius' Old Town.

The fair evolved from St. Casimir's processions dating back to 1604 and is traditionally held on the weekend nearest to Mar. 4, St. Casimir's Day.
