Day-to-day programme

Every day during Lace Week

Open yards in Old Rauma 

Old Rauma Association organises an event of open yards during the Lace Week. Local residents open their gardens and inner courtyards to the public. Festival visitors and tourists have an opportunity to take a look at the private gardens and courtyards. The residents organise flea markets and might service some beverages. The yard is open for visitors when there is an Old Rauma Association sign at the gate. There might be a sign saying “Pihakirppis” or “Kirppis”. Most of the yards are open between 10:00–18:00. You can find a map of the open yards at Old Rauma shops and Service Point Pyyrman at the Old Cityhall (Valtakatu 2 A). The map is also published here on the website on July 19th.
