Festival Description

Storsjöyran Festival (or The Great Lake Festival) is an annual event going back to the early sixties. The festival was started in honor of the ancient can-do spirit of the people of Jämtland (the county where Östersund is situated), and to show the rest of Sweden that although this region is sparsely populated its people have the zest, courage and knowledge to create a festival of international size and standard. Something that is well reflected in the fact that the festival gathers around 55,000 visitors every year and is the second biggest city festival in Sweden.
