Join Tampereen päivä – Tampere Day festivities from 30 September to 2 October! 

In the 18th century, the Tammerkoski rapids, connecting two local lakes, were discovered as a significant source of hydropower. By decision of King Gustav III of Sweden, a new city – Tampere – was established in the Swedish realm in 1779. This year, our beloved city has its 243rd anniversary.  

On Tampere Day weekend, we celebrate the unique atmosphere of our city. Tampere Day is celebrated from September 30 to October 2, and it fills the city with art, experiences, open doors, and festivities. 

See real-time event programme on the Tampereen Päivä website.
