Our festival programme will include music ranging from pop to classical, a wide selection of performing arts, clubs, events for children, films, speech events and exhibitions. Throughout its history, this event has always tried to stay a few steps ahead of the times and try out new ideas. Our theme for 2022 is motion.
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! The diverse programme will foster a wide range of cultural interests, with 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. We welcome you to join us in celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2022!
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!
