Our Kuopio Festival

Our Kuopio festival is residents’ own urban festival. It is held annually in August. The events are spread all over the city from the suburbs to the countryside. Whoever can take part in the events as an experiencer or make their own event. The events are mainly free of charge and open to all.

Next Our Kuopio Festival is held 10.-25.8.2024. The Night of the Arts is 23.8.2024.

I have an idea of an event – how to get involved?

Register your event to Kuopion Seinä to be part of the festival program! Please enter the event details latest 31 July 2024.

You can apply to the Our Kuopio Festival production grant if needed. Please contact project coordinator for information related to organising the event or if you need assistance in finding partners, venue etc.

The grant application for the year 2024 is now open! Remember that a well-organised event requires enough planning time. Especially for larger events, you should start the production as early as possible.
