The "Freedom Picnic" was held for the first time in 2016. His idea came after the journalist Andrius Tapinai refused to meet the Kaunas district community. At that time the event, which took place at Stulginsky University, received a lot of support, according to the organizers' calculations they visited about 10,000. People performed by famous Lithuanian artists.
The authors of the "Freedom Picnic" claim that the goal of the festival is to draw up specific guidelines that each of us can do in the coming years to improve the state and its citizens.
