Access to the area
Rauma Lace week takes place in the city center of Rauma, more specifically in Old Rauma and the waterfront of the canal. The festival area is closed from traffic during the week. The easiest way to move around at the festival area is by walking or by bike.
The festival area in Old Rauma and around Kanalinranta is closed from traffic during the week. Traffic bans concern all festival guests. If you use a wheel chair please carefully plan in advance your program for easier travel at the festival area. The streets of Old Rauma are paved with cobblestone and might be uncomfortable for wheel chair users. The International Grand Market however is placed on stable roads and enables easier travel.
Rauma Lace Week is a green event. We started to use Bio Energy in 2016 and the program sheet is printed on recycled paper.
We have put a lot of effort in providing recycling containers all over the festival area. There are containers for every kind of litter; energy, bio, metal, glass, and cardboard wastes. Please recycle your waste.
Rauma Lace Week is applying for The EcoCompass environmental certificate this year. The EcoCompass certificate demonstrates a commitment to continuously improving the festival’s eco-friendliness. The most important factor is the reductions and management of the environmental impacts that the festival is causing. EcoCompass is based both on the respective Nordic environmental management systems and on international standards on environmental management. You can read more about the certificate on the EcoCompass site.
