Lux Helsinki is an annual five-day festival of light art that spreads across downtown Helsinki in early January, along routes that vary from year to year. The displays are open to everyone free of charge. The artworks of Lux Helsinki vary widely in shape and mode of presentation. For example, they may involve building illuminations in changing colours, video projections and music, kinetic light artworks and installations. These works are created by leading Finnish and international light artists. Lux Helsinki has been organised since 2009.
This annual celebration encompasses several cultural events, with theatre, high-class art exhibitions, design, gift items, open-air dances and musical events. Orivesi Summer School never fails to inspire visitors with cultural courses and lectures. So why not mix business and pleasure at Orivesi this summer?
Our splendid wintertime city festival will bring a wide range of Finnish and international artists to Oulu. Artistic Director Jaakko Kuusisto has prepared a programme of premiere performances, major productions, chamber concerts and club events, together with master classes in classical and rhythm music.
This unique urban festival is a joyful celebration that takes over much of downtown Kotka, bringing visitors back time and again to meet old friends and have lots of fun every year!

There will also be a generous programme of free admission events for families with children, including the Children’s Maritime Festival. Come and enjoy a splendid festival milieu in our seaside town!
