Welcome to Kotka Maritime festival
Meripäivät (Kotka Maritime Festival) is a legendary summer festival held in Kotka, a beautiful seaside town in Southeastern Finland. The festival was founded in 1962 and since then, Meripäivät has become one of the biggest festivals in Finland attracting around 200,000 visitors every year. Meripäivät offers a wide variety of events for all ages and most of it for free! The diverse festival programme is a delightful mix of music, sports and family events. The majority of festival events are located in the city center which is easily accessible by public transportation or bike. During the four festival days the whole town gets together to celebrate and – most importantly – to enjoy the unique atmosphere Meripäivät is famous for.
Come celebrate Meripäivät again in July 2023!
