Hello,

I know that there is a Reindeer Carnival in Oulu in February, but I could only find the programm for 2016. Can anyone living in Oulu confirm if it is going to happen, and when. Thank you.

I can't confirm that, but if you wish to see the real thing, first race of the National Reindeer Cup is on February 24th and 25th in Rovaniemi: http://visitrovaniemi.fi/event/porocup-2017-reindeer-race-mantyvaara/

But there is no petting or reindeer sleigh rides there. It's a serious competition.

It's listed in the Finnish events calendar of the organizer, Oulun liikekeskus.

18.2.2017 11:00 - 19.2.2017 16:00 at the marketplace.

Well picked! Here it is: http://www.rotuaari.info/index.php?id=480&date=20170218&event_id=2520&span=&event_type=&event_location=&event_select_beg=&event_select_end=#eventview

But if you click "Porokarnevaalit" on the left, it still shows last years info.

Looks like a nice event. Maybe should visit myself also and have a weekend off in Oulu...
