About Festivals in Sweden

Festivals in Sweden draw on a historic culture and geographic climate setting to produce an amazing range of festivals. Sweden's religious heritage combined with a geographic variation makes for a combination of church and agricultural celebrations the attract visitors from all over the world. Although only four percent of today's population is engaged in agriculture most of the rural communities have unique local festivals based on their church or type of farming. Religious holidays such as Christmas focus on arts and crafts and food that set the community and holiday apart. Christmas Eve is the beginning of this holiday which ends three days later on Boxing Day.

Sweden's urban areas see a huge selection of music and arts annual events. Sweden music festivals are world events. The city of Gothenburg hosts two exciting annual events. Summerburst is a celebration of electronic music that draws performers, artists and appreciative audiences. The Gothenburg Culture Festival in mid-August presents a wide range of artists from ballet to Classical music and symphonies. All this presented with a backdrop of unique Scandinavian architecture.

The Peace and Love Festival held annually in Borlange, offers those who participate an opportunity to see and hear ideas that may be new to them and can be understood in an atmosphere of tolerance. Sweden shares its culture generously with its festivals.
