Hamina summer is as much for enjoying a great variety of cultural events as it is for enjoying Finnish nature and the seaside in this unique garrison town. Here are some happenings you won’t want to miss during your visit to Hamina!

The two major Hamina festival summer events in 2022 are the Hevoset Bastionissa Equestrian Event and the Hamina Tattoo International Military Music Festival, both held in the impressive Hamina Bastion. The first ever Hevoset Bastionissa Equestrian Event is happening in Hamina 8 June – 12 June 2022. The unforgettable, thrilling shows for the whole family will take place at the Bastion and Kadettikoulunkatu Street Arenas. The stately, yet relaxed Hamina Tattoo International Military Music Festival has already become a tradition. The historical fortress town of Hamina creates a magnificent setting for the event which takes place July 11-16, 2022.
