Ústí nad Orlicí hosts a number of cultural events. Among the most significant ones are the Heran Violoncello Competition and the Kocian Violin Competition, the latter being held together with the music festival “Kocianovo Ústí”. There are also various theatre, dance and documentary festivals or the town festivities “Město v pohybu – týden dobré pohody” (roughly “Town in Motion”). The summer fairground is highly popular among the children and teenagers. In winter, all generations meet at concerts and other events during the “Ústecký advent” festival.
