Sauna Festival

Are you a Finnish citizen and do you have an hour to spare? The climax of the Sauna Festival is the Finnish Championships in vihta binding for the sauna. If you still know how to make a birch-twig vihta, register for the competition and go crazy over Finnish sauna culture. The composition, binding, ideal measurements and usability of the vihta will be judged.

The festival also offers a great deal more: Miss Sauna will get her Mister, there is the award of the year’s Sauna Master, sauna dances, sauna-themed exhibitions, various sauna products and, of course, different saunas, with the heat and smell of the vihta from morning till evening and long into the blue summer night… Come and meet other passionate sauna enthusiasts!
