Events and activities in Sundsvall 17-19 september
Anyone knows about any interesting events in Sundsvall this weekend (17-19 septemeber 2010)? I considering to go there (from Umeå, also in northern Sweden) with a friend from abroad (Pakistan) and hope to find anything interesting for us to do exactly this weekend. Have tried to search on interenet and not found much going on right now. Thank you in advance for any ideas or recommendations!!
Re: Events and activities in Sundsvall 17-19 september
There is a full list but it is in Swedish.
Possibly you can translate it with Google:
I see various exhibitions, a dragracing event on the 18th (early morning!) and various club/music/dance events at night (well into the night, in fact).
Travel Tips for Sundsvall
Gatufesten street festival
In July we host one of the largest street festivals in Sweden. The Gatufesten festival attracts up to 100 000 people. An estimated 40% of the visitors are assumed to be tourists.
This is THE major event in Sundsvall and THE week to be here. Summer, fun and an never ending flow of activities and artists on stage.
Previous bands on stage features: Alanis Morisette, Pink, ZZ Top, The Cardigans. The 2005 festival takes place during the first week of July. (Monday and Tuesday are quiet but from Wednesday on it is 4 days of non stop party and fun).
Monday-Wednesday: Entrance free
Thursday-Saturday: About 600 SEK for a 3-day pass.
Where? In the centre! Main square and main street!
The Spex is the student theatre group in Sundsvall. I think most universities in Sweden have a Spex. They put on a show every spring, and I was in it when I was there. I played a dancer in Utan Rim Och Reson. I sang and acted in Swedish without knowing what I was saying or singing! It was great fun - one of my best memories of my stay in Sweden.
One thing they had in the show, is that whenever the audience yelled "Omstart!", the actors had to re-do the scene, using improv to give it a funny twist. Then, when we finished the funny little improv, we had to continue the show normally as it was scripted.
Hit the slopes
There is a ski hill at Sodra Berget where you can ski and snowboard. There is also cross-country skiing. But girls, don't expect to meet a tall, blond, Swedish athlete there. The majority of the Swedish boys at the ski hill range in age from 3 to 12! There are lots of children at the ski hill, and they're so cute in their full-length snowsuits and head-to-toe ski/snowboard equipment! But if you fall off the ski lift, be prepared for them to laugh at you! If you don't have your own snowboard/skis, you can rent them there. There is a little cabin near the hill where you can rent equipment and get a day pass for the ski lift.
Sodra Berget is the South Hill. In winter, it is used as a ski/snowboarding hill. There is also a lake nearby, and some locals go ice-fishing in the winter. There is a dock and an area where they cut out the ice for the ducks - in winter it seems like there's thousands of ducks because they all stay at that area! Later, when the ice melts, the lake is beautiful, and there are all sorts of trails to walk. There is a river going from the lake, which flows into town, and it's always nice to go along the river.
I am a resident of Sundsvall, Sweden.
Sundsvall is situated about 400 km north of Stockholm.
The Sundsvall region, home to some 115,000 people, is the most densely populated area of northern Sweden.
It plays a prominent role, not only in sports, industry and commerce, but also in education, culture and the arts.
