Also in 2024: VMX Kids for the youngest ones – free entry on the day!

VÅNGA HARVEST FESTIVAL

Simultaneously at the large harvest and handicraft festival you will find local producers selling fruit, vegetables and other produce, local art and craft stands, entertainment and amusements for the whole family.
