Åland Spring Fair

Celebrate the spring in the Åland countryside


DISCOVER ÅLAND IN THE TIME OF the apple blossoms and spring asparagus during the last weekend of May. Bring along friends and family to the open farms, restaurants and cafés that welcome visitors all over Åland. With the help of our site and program map, you can explore the hidden gems of the Åland countryside and celebrate spring with locally produced foods and crafts 25–26 May.
The Åland Spring Fair offers plenty of things to experience throughout the island community. In the evening Friday 24 May, the festivities begin with our Spring Fair Opening at Ålands Landsbygdscentrum. Here, you can see a selection of veteran tractors, meet farm animals, take a quiz or just enjoy the grandest picnic on Åland in a naturally beautiful landscape. During an opening ceremony, we will hear a few words from the organizer, Skördefestens Vänner r.f., followed by music and a child-friendly family picnic. Bring your own picnic or buy refreshments at the fair!
THROUGHOUT THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND (25–26 MAY), the spring celebration will be in full swing all around Åland with exciting activities and open farms. Visit local breweries, witness the crowning of the Åland’s best hamburger chef, taste handcrafted cheeses at a local dairy, explore bee farming, pet little lambs, go on a pig safari, enjoy freshly harvested asparagus with a good drink or go on a hiking tour where you can learn about the edible spring plants of the wild. All activities and farms are marked with their own number on the map so that you can easily find your way. The most convenient way of getting around is by car, but our main sponsor Eckerö Linjen will also arrange a bus tour of the fair on Saturday. The tour will start at the main bus station in Mariehamn and stops at a few carefully chosen fair destinations during the day. Our program is designed the whole family and has plenty to offer for all ages!
