Information in English

With 120,000 visitors, Piteå Dansar och Ler is one of Sweden’s biggest street festivals.

For many years now, at the end of July the centre of Piteå has attracted jubilant crowds, music of all kinds, food from around the world, exciting sporting events, fantastic dance, a market, a fun fair and so much more besides. During the light summer evenings and nights, the whole of Piteå is transformed into a party venue with a vibrancy that you’d normally expect in the big tourist hotspots of the Mediterranean!

Eventful days
One of the many strengths of Piteå Dansar och Ler is all the events that take place during the day. The daytime programme is packed with activities, performances and market stalls.
