The whole of August will be packed with events, music, literature, films and cultural experiences of all kinds! Oulu August Festival is a package of eight festivals and dozens of fringe events, with local people and leading international guests appearing in the concert halls, restaurants and cafés, churches, libraries and galleries, parks, streets and city squares of Oulu and the surrounding districts.
This unique urban festival is a joyful celebration that takes over the entire City Port and downtown districts of Kotka, bringing visitors back time and again to meet old friends and have lots of fun every year! The diverse programme will foster an international atmosphere, with local and international culture, music, dance and theatre, sporting and boating events, and the largest parade of the Finnish summer. There will also be a generous programme of free admission events for families with children, including the Children’s Maritime Festival.
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.
Finland’s largest arts festival will once again provide a diverse programme of events throughout the city, with experiences ranging from classical to world music and pop, from drama to contemporary dance, and from visual art to film and children’s events. We invite and encourage you to lose yourself in the Night of the Arts or get carried away with our fringe programme. This is a festival that brings the arts to everyone!
