The Sturgeon & Champagne festival is held annually on the second weekend of August in Independence Park on the shore of the River Pirtinvirta in Varkaus.

Over the years, this summer festival has drawn thousands of people from the town and elsewhere to enjoy the August evening atmosphere with performances by top Finnish artists.

The event, celebrating Varkaus's signature fish, also offers first-class food and drink experiences. In the festival marquee, visitors enjoy a substantial dinner, caviar and excellent refreshments. Outside in the festival area, you can also enjoy sturgeon and champagne as well as high-quality local food.
