This is Oskarshamn’s big carnival – a glorious party with carousels, popcorn, artists, market stalls and super bargains in the shops.
The Kristdala summer fair has around 175 stall holders with a great selection of goods and products, everything from socks and bread to their own handicrafts, fruit and vegetables.
You’ll also find items for the garden and recreation as well as ecological and local produce.
The aim is to gather all vehicle enthusiasts to the same place – Brädholmen in Oskarshamn on Wednesdays.
Everyone who considers their vehicle to be a “pearl”, regardless of age, is welcome to show off their wheels at these vehicle meets. The audience gets to vote for the nicest vehicle of the evening and the owner receives a trophy to take home.
The event of the year in the idyllic village of Mörtfors.
Most of the locals are involved in preparing for this day, when visitors can purchase wares from some 30 stall holders, take part in a duck race, eat wild pig-meat under the oaks on Basarkullen, buy lottery tickets, throw darts, take a boat tour, have a go at air-rifle
shooting and much more.
Oskarshamn is at present the foremost place for Swedish offshore racing.
The competitions are held where the public has the best vantage points, so as to have the opportunity from the shore and from the sea of closely following these fast races which take place both inside the harbour and in the nearby archipelago.
Last year the Geranium Day drew around 1500 people, including exhibitors and workers.
Badholmen, the green little island right in the middle of Oskarshamn’s inner harbour, is perfect for this type of event. There will be a geranium show as well as thousands of geraniums and other plants on sale, a poultry show, children’s activities, lotteries etc.
And don’t forget to test some geranium cake with your coffee!
