The Baltic Festival

Do Events Art & Handicraft

The Baltic Festival - always Wednesday-Saturday week 29 - is one of the largest city festivals in south of Sweden and it is a big annual event in Karlshamn.


The Baltic Festival (Östersjöfestivalen) is one of the largest city festivals in southern Sweden and has been organized in Karlshamn for almost 60 years.
Four fantastic days with music, entertainment, cultural events, funfair, vintage car exhibition, and food from all over the world. "Smakfesten", trotting festival, "One Wknd Only" and "Hello 90s" are other popular parts of the festival.

Thousands of visitors enjoy the festival, the music, the food, the trade, the atmosphere and the particularly rich cultural life and every year, some of Sweden's biggest artists perform at the festival.

Ärtsoppeseglingen (the pea soup sailing), for example, is a tradition during Friday morning that puts a marine touch on the festival. The wooden boat "Blekingsekan" is a symbol that unites the coastal people of Blekinge and about twenty boats gather to compete in different classes.

Like an oasis in the city center lies the Cultural district. Here, visitors are offered peaceful relaxation in the middle of the frenzy festival. On a stroll among alleys and squares, you can enjoy old objects, current art and genuine craftsmanship.

The festival parade is a another popular festival feature that goes through the city center on Thursday evening. The ideas and creativity have no limits when associations and music groups march through the city in a united troop to top off the festival atmosphere.

The festival program will be updated during the spring.
