This article provides a list of fun and interesting activities, attractions, and events you can enjoy in Prague during the month of April, updated for 2022.

Enjoy St. Mathew’s Fair

This fair has been celebrated since the 16th century at least, so you’ll really get a good taste of a traditional Czech festival – updated for modern times, of course – here! St. Mathew’s Fair started in February and runs through April 25th, 2022, at the Prague Holesovice Exhibition Centre. There will be rides, games, and live entertainment.

Prague Majales

At the end of April, this festival will be held in towns all over the country, including in Prague. This year, the festival will be on April 23rd, 2022. There will be a parade through Old Town before the concerts start in the early afternoon.

The festival draws a crowd of over 20,000 people, most of them university-student aged. But everyone is welcome to attend! Live entertainment is spread out over multiple stages. The majority of the bands each year are Czech, with a few Slovak artists.

Tickets are 500 CZK, and the first time you enter you’ll receive a wristband so you can leave and come back at any time.

An ancient folk festival, Witches’ Night is a cross between Halloween and May Day and marks the end of winter and the start of spring. An effigy of a witch, said to resemble winter (or perhaps a historical reference to witch-hunting) is burnt on pyres on hilltops across the country.

In Prague, there is usually a lantern parade starting on April 30 at 7 pm at the Lesser Town Square, proceeding on to Kampa Park for a witches burning around 8 pm.
