Meidän Festivaali / Vår Festival / Our Festival
Our Festival, an event renowned for crossing the traditional boundaries between various arts, is a bold, open-minded, and socially aware festival that restructures the cultural scene in Finland. The event, held annually in the historically significant Lake Tuusula area, was first held in 1997. Long-time artistic leader of the festival violinist Pekka Kuusisto ended his tenure in 2018, and the festival is now lead by Kamus String Quartet, one of the most prominent Nordic string ensembles.
Our Festival has been recognized with awards such as the accolade of Festival of the Year in 2011 by Finland Festivals, Finland’s State Prize for Music in year 2013 and The Classical Music Festival of the Year by Music&Media in 2021.
