Rørosmartnan (Røros Fair)

A great excuse to visit Røros in winter, this big fair draws locals and visitors from far and wide with its unique atmosphere.
Røros 17 Feb 2015 to 21 Feb 2015

Røros makes a picturesque backdrop for this annual fair, which has been held in the UNESCO world heritage mining town since 1854. Attracting some 75,000 visitors every year, the fair is one of the region's largest events, and a real trip down memory lane. The "backyards", where people used to gather to trade, play music, dance and tell stories, is where the action takes place. Try some local food, see how traditional crafts were performed, take part in an auction or even go on a sleigh ride.
