Welcome to the Sami Easterfestival 2017! 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 Sami have always gathered during the Easter holiday. Everyone met in the village, 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 entire program for this year’s festival.
