Container Dance is
an entertaining event organized every summer on the
first Saturday in August at Kolkonlahti Summer Café
overlooking the breathtaking view over lake Kolkonjärvi.
A lorry container is used as the stage
(hence the name). The first dance event was
already in 1996.
Container Dance there is music to every taste ,
traditionally we start with old dance music and later on
in the evening more lively rock and pop groups take the
stage. Refreshments at the buffet include hot and cold
drinks, pancakes, barbeque sausages, lörtsy pies, and
On the first Saturday in August
there is a lively market fair happening called
‘Lipposmarkkinat’ in Rantasalmi village. The fair
derives its name from a roguish fictive character Pekka
Lipponen, well known to most Finns. Lipposmarkkinnat is
a traditional village fair with a lot of goings on.
Welcome to enjoy a summer weekend at the Container
