There are many music events, open-air theatres, fairs, markets, sports events and village fêtes where you can enjoy the holiday atmosphere together with the locals.
Cultural life in Lomaseutu is also active during the winter, although on a slightly smaller scale compared to the summer season. International jazz and blues musicians have found the idyllic Lomaseutu and hold concerts in the ‘Miekkaniemi kotikahvila’ café, which has claimed nationwide fame as a venue. Pihtipudas Sali and Viitasaari Areena are also excellent venues for enjoying concerts and theatre. The ‘Viitasaari Elokuvaviikko’ film festival in early spring provides a perfect opportunity for experiencing contemporary Finnish film.
