Welcome to the Sámi Easterfestival 2019! We have a varied program that suits families and people of all ages. It includes concerts, theatre, exhibitions, market, duodji, art, cinema, scootercross and reindeerracing. The Sámi have always gathered during the Easter holiday. Everyone met in the villaage, and weddings, confirmations and christenings were usually celebrated this week. After celebrating and competing in reindeerracing, they parted and began moving the reindeers to the coast. Eventually, this tradition became the Easterfestival as we know it today. Here you can find information and the programme for this year’s festival.
