Throughout the summer season Central Finland´s festivals showcase a wide range of music, folk tradition, jazz and rarely encountered skiffle. When summer is at its most beautiful, the core of Finnish longing, the melancholy tango, fills the open-air dance pavilions.

Finland's oldest and even today most modern arts festival - Jyväskylän Kesä - has served as a model for hundreds of other cultural events in the Nordic countries.
The biggest annual motor sport event in the Nordic countries, Neste Rally Finland, is also a round of the World Rally Championship. The rally's bubbling international atmosphere takes Central Finland firmly in its grip. This high-speed August event attracts over three hundred thousand rally fans from around the world as the top drivers fight it out on tough sand and gravel stages.
