Our Festival (in Finnish: Meidän Festivaali) is renowned for its fresh approach to the arts and its crossover events. Bold, open-minded and socially aware it was first held in 1997 as Chamber Music by Lake Tuusula and is now an annual event. The shores of Lake Tuusula provide the backdrop for a unique journey into Finland’s rich cultural history. For it is here that Jean Sibelius, Pekka Halonen and other artists once made their homes. The event was renamed Our Festival in 2010.
