Culture Vaasa

Culture belongs to us all. It makes people live longer. Culture creates wellbeing and gives a boost to everyone, regardless of age. Come and visit the cultural city of Vaasa and see what we have to offer!

Vaasa has pearls on offer from rock to jazz, drama to musicals, contemporary art to artisan villages as well as nature tours and ghost stories. Theatre experiences are provided by two professional theatres, a university theatre and several smaller theatre groups.

Artistic heritage is enriched by numerous museums and galleries. Classical concerts are made by the City Orchestra, the Vaasa Opera, chamber music ensembles and numerous other orchestras and choirs. Lighter contemporary music is on offer too. The city’s restaurants are full of bands playing different styles of music throughout the year.

Events – big and small – in Vaasa are enough for many trips. Choose your favourites in the events calendar!
