Jokkmokk’s winter market

Bored of sitting at home all the time? Perhaps you want to visit my favourite market? Jokkmokk’s winter market is held in northern Sweden every February. It is famous for the cultural events, with skilled artisans and interesting concerts, and it is especially interesting if you are interested in Sami artists and artisans.

This year there is unfortunately no ordinary market, but the online version, although disappointing compared to the real thing, is both easier to visit and less cold than the original. Most of it is of course in Swedish or Sami, but some of the films have English subtitles and many of the performances are enjoyable even if you don’t understand.

Very varied content, just like the real market, you can experience it here. (Note that the market is currently ongoing so I guess more content will be added in the next few days).
