Kokkola Winter Accordion Festival
10 February 2023 – 19 February 2023 | Kokkola
For a full quarter century, Kokkola has been a winter encounter point for lovers of accordion music that is much more than the sum of its parts! Our international guests this year will come from France, Denmark, Lithuania and Sweden. We are eagerly anticipating a biography of Aleksis Kivi, the world-famous accordion interpretations of Richard Galliano, a marathon of classical accordion from decades past, a children’s opera, and the traditional experiences of the Winter Accordion Festival: a downtown winter sauna village, guided tours, musical luncheons, melodies for senior citizens and light music. Not to forget our Festival dances! We bid you warmly welcome to join us in celebrating our winter urban festival in Kokkola!
