Kätevä – one of the largest arts and crafts events in Finland is held at the Lahti Fair Centre, on 31 October – 1 November together with Tekevä, which will bring together a wide range of hobbies. The Kätevä – Tekevä fairs are a large-scale event for the whole family that will attract nationwide interest.
Also an international Gem and Jewel Fair will be held at the Lahti Fair Centre at the same time with Kätevä-Tekevä.
Kätevä brings together Finnish arts and crafts traders and members of the public who have spending power and a keen interest in handicrafts. Every year, the event brings in thousands of visitors. The main focus of the fair is, naturally, on Finnish arts and crafts products and supplies, sold by hundreds of traders. The selection on offer covers all aspects of arts and crafts: craft materials, jewellery, ornaments, utility items, toys, tools, clothes and accessories for both people and pets, home textiles, gifts, art items, and artisanal foods. In addition to a wide range of products for sale, there will be dance performances, fashion shows, craft demonstrations, displays of handicraft art, and workshops.
Tekevä brings hobbyists and enthusiasts of all sorts together under the same roof. Car tracks, RC cars and aircrafts, dolls’ houses, games, diving and many other interesting hobbies set the stage for a varied and diversity-rich event suitable for the whole family.
