Big festivals and folk culture events have been a centuries-old tradition in Estonia. Today, alongside the preservation of national traditions and being cultural events, these events have also become popular leisure activities. Leisure activities are known for their positive effect on humans’ subjective wellbeing through emotional, social and psychological effects. This article focuses on adults’ motivation, both in Estonia and abroad, to engage in folk dance activities and their possible impact on subjective wellbeing. The study was carried out among Estonians living in Estonia and abroad, and it was designed as a mixed methods research. The results indicate that social factors play an important role in motivating adults to engage in folk dance, but also educational aspects are involved, which contribute to the general wellbeing of a folk dancer.
