Events all year around
The municipalities in South Päijänne offer a wide range of events and cultural entertainment all year round.
Sysmä´s Suvisoitto “Summer Sounds”, a festival of music and other arts, has been held for almost thirty years. Uotinpäivät, in turn, has been held for the past forty years, attracting both permanent and holiday residents to spend leisurely time together in various competitions and to enjoy home-brewed beer.
The largest event in Padasjoki is Sahtimarkkinat, the “Home-Brewed Beer Market”, which serves as a meeting place along the village's main road for both holiday residents and tourists. At the end of July, the Päijännepurjehdus sailing event gathers hundreds of participants at Finland's largest inland water sailing competition.
