Would you like to spend a day or two at Särkänniemi Adventure Park? Attend a few of the many open-air concerts in the city parks? Have a good time in urban festivals or take the kids to one of the many children’s events? There is something for everybody.

Each summer month has one Super Weekend with a particularly large number of festivals and sporting events: mark in your calendar the dates 10–12 June, 22–24 July and 12–14 August and check out the event calendars.

Museums are always interesting places to visit and, conveniently, they also provide shelter from the sun or pouring rain, as the case may be. Sara Hildén Art Museum exhibits the works of sculptor Ron Mueck in the summer, and Tampere Art Museum is exhibiting the Young Artist of the Year, Reima Nevalainen. Museum Centre Vapriikki offers ten exhibitions for you to explore: you might want to visit the popular “Giants of the Ice Age" and “Hurriganes" exhibitions, for example.

Have a beautiful, relaxing and eventful summer!
