The Event City

In Växjö there are events within culture, sports, gastronomy and a lot more. Here big concerts and musicals mix with smaller local arrangements.

Växjö offers a rich range

Växjö is a meeting and event town more than others. Here international conferences, national Eurovision Song Contest competitions and Swedish Championship finals mix with smaller local events. Our modern arena city with stadiums for floorball, ice hockey, football and athletics are all world class. Rich and varied concert and cultural offerings with a number of different festivals in central Växjö contribute to an exciting atmosphere all year round.


MAT is a unique event for Växjö and takes place in september every year. MAT is one of the biggest platforms in Sweden for locally produced and sustainable food. Each year in August we have the Karl-Oskar days, Växjös biggest city festival. Culture night in January and Spring Festival in May are festivals of culture. Every Monday in July you can sing along in Linnéparken – a real Swedish experience.
