Joensuu – the city of events
Joensuu is a city of events, in which hundreds of events are being organised every year, from big festivals to small workshops. The year 2015 was a real opportunity for Joensuu to demonstrate its proficiency, because within one month three different kinds of major events were organised in the city: agricultural exhibition Farmari, rock-festival Ilosaarirock and Finnhorse harness race Kuninkuusravit. In addition the world tour of Nightwish started from Joensuu and in Kohtiolahti was organised the World championship of biathlon. The major events of 2015 gathered almost 300 000 visitors.
Joensuu has a long history as an event city, which is reflected in the skills and abilities of both the operators and the authorities. The inhabitants of Joensuu are also eager to visit events and the geographical location near the Russian border creates growing opportunities for event producers.
