Jyväskylä is a great city for events
The City of Jyväskylä is investing in the development of event-related activities. Organizing events has been made easier e.g. by enhancing the permit procedures for outdoor areas and by creating new tools. A guide for those arranging events: jyvaskyla.fi/tapahtumakaupunki (in Finnish).
Every year, approximately 5,000 events of different sizes take place in Jyväskylä, from small-scale pop-up events to events gathering mass audiences. Of these, more than one thousand are events with more than 200 people, and approximately 60 are considered major events.
