Tamperrada Pintxofiesta

30.8.-3.9.2022 Tampere

Tamperrada is a one-week food festival that presents the culinary arts of the restaurants in Tampere. The event focuses on spanish ‘pintxos’, which are small, individually served finger snacks, usually pinched by a stick. The pintxos are an essential part of Basque culture, and after the seven years of organizing Tamperrada Pintxofiesta, Tampere has slowly gained its reputation as the San Sebastian of Finland. During the pintxo fiesta, more than 60 local restaurants take part in the competition of the best pintxo, and the professional judges choose the winner evaluating three criteria: taste, aesthetics, and innovation.
