Drakfestivalen - The Dragon Festival (August).
For over 17 year the annual Dragonboat race, now also known as Drakfestivalen is annualy taking place in and around Selångersån. What started as a race is now a fully evolved festival for several days. The Dragonboat race similar to the chinese one, with teams from local business and other brave locals is held with festivites around of all kinds from dance and music to theater and food. And don't miss Reagge night, the duck race or the Little Dragon Competition or maybe the diving for "treasures" in Selångersån (the Selånger river). A lot more fun to come of course. (Taken from the program schedule 2008). Official website is www.drakfestivalen.se.

the nostalgic band Gyllene Tider (Per Gessle,
Roxette) gave a consert attended by no less
than 24 000, making this the most visited event
in the history of Sundsvall.
The conserts are being organized at Idrottsparken
(Sundsvall Park Arena) during summer and at
Nordichallen in winter time. John Fogerty performed
