What is the Food & Art Festival?
The Food & Art Festival was originally the brain child of Finnish Chef, Pekka Terävä, who wanted to invite his chef friends from abroad to spend time enjoying Finland’s beautiful nature by fishing, hunting and going to the sauna. It soon became a great success turning into an annual festival and is now entering its fifth year!
