Christmas and New Year in Kuhmo

Experience the fairy-tale atmosphere of Christmas together at Kuhmo’s Christmas party, Christmas vendors, Christmas carols and concerts, Christmas porridge and lunches, and other wonderful Christmas events organized by companies and associations!

Every year Kuhmo’s entrepreneurs, associations, residents and other Christmas people gather to organize a joint Christmas event in Kuhmo.
