A festival of rhythms during the first weekend in June where improvisation, spirituality and interplay between different art forms provide the cornerstones of the first-class music. Kerava is exceptional for a town of its size in that it can produce home-grown jazz performers of every hue, be it composers, top performers, amateur musicians, critics or "professional listeners". Organised by the Kerava Jazz Association together with the cultural office of Kerava .
KERAVA DAY - JUNE
Kerava Day in June has become a tradition, in fact a two-day event dedicated to local history and culture. Townsfolk gather for the main event in the garden of Kerava Museum adjoining the museum buildings for a traditional program of brass music, folk dancing, and of course the ceremonial speech. Kerava Day is organized by the museum office.
THE GARLIC FESTIVAL - AUGUST
The third weekend in August is a time when the unmistakable smell of garlic pervades the air. The centre of town is taken over by our garlic market, the stalls laden with row upon row of delicious, garlic-based, products. Such is the fame of our garlic festival that it has spread beyond the borders of our country - not a few of the many tens of thousands of visitors it attracts come from abroad. The bounties offered by the festival are complemented by an accompanying programme of music and other culture. Organised by the "Friends of Garlic", Valkosipulin ystävät - Allium Sativum ry.
THE CIRCUS FAIR - SEPTEMBER
The circus fair is a continuation of Kerava’s more than one hundred year old funfair tradition. Throughout this September weekend you can expect to encounter a carnival atmosphere, market stalls, funfair entertainments, as well as theatrical and musical performances. Organised by the local sport association Keravan Urheilijat ry.
