Ovikenveckan - A festival in the heart of Jämtland
Ovikenveckan is a music and culture festival which is held every second year in the beautiful Oviken countryside in Jämtland, Sweden. And the Ovikenveckan is, for several reasons, very special. The festival is run entirely by voluntary efforts with good financial help of local sponsors. Ovikenveckan offers visitors both music, art and theater in different genres. In addition, local food culture in the form of the very popular chalet breakfasts. We have over the years offered a mix of local, national and international artists. Ovikens Chamber Orchestra, Ovikens choirs and Ovikens folk musicians have all had a given place in the program. Additionally, many other local musicians, singers, actors and artists has contributed to festival over years.
As concert venues, we have used our beautiful churches, several community centers, church halls, auction hall, hangar, schools and Ovikens amusement park Fröjdholmen. We have also in the program had open air services, magnificent-view concerts where Oviksfjällen is a natural scene fund and spectacular cultural happenings in Kusbölehelvetet, a magical ravine.
Oviken week has in the past years experienced a visitor numbers of about 6,000 people per summer.
We wish you a warm welcome to Oviken and Ovikenveckan in summer 2015!
