Besides for these three bigger festivals, there are a lot of smaller festivals, concerts, different kind of evenings and events, organized for different people with different interests. The Seinäjoki Areena is a place for various exhibitions, bigger and smaller. Not only do they bring together people from the city but also the nearby towns and villages, sometimes even tourists.

History

The most beautiful museum in Seinäjoki must be the Törnävä’s museum area as it is located by the riverside. There are 18 different old buildings which include the beautiful mansion and its many outbuildings.

The Civil Guard and Lotta Svärd –museum gives us a chance to learn about the civil guard and Lotta Svärd organisations operations between 1924 – 1944. This beautiful wooden house was also designed by the talented Alvar Aalto.
