Events throughout the year
Kristinestad boasts many sights and experiences. Villages organise their own market events especially in the summertime and the Kilen Local Museum in Sideby organises an artisan event, fermented herring party and an 18th century feast for groups.
The galleries display art by local and national artists, choir participation is active and sing-along songs echo from the yellow pavilion in the Badhusparken Park.
An antique fair and a great market ball coincide with the summer market, a nostalgic 60s rock event is held a couple of weeks later.
Kristinestad has a long tradition of summer auctions.
More recent successes include the Easter witch competition and the atmospheric Christmas opening of the city centre.
