The Aland Sea Days is the summer’s major coastal cultural event with nearly 20.000 visitors every year. The Sea Days is an occasion for traditional sailing ships, wooden boats, tourists and Ålanders to meet and a big music event with dancing to live music at night.

The following day, 17th of July, there is a sailing race for the ships from Degerby to the Maritime Quarter in the Eastern Harbour of Mariehamn.
