Forssa is the busy centre of the region's commercial life and services. During the summer market days (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), the town centre is full of hustle and bustle, and various events draw people from far and wide.
Forssa is widely known as a sporting town, and its centre has every swimming lover’s must-see location: Viihdeuimala Vesihelmi Waterpark where you can spend hours splashing around in the bubbles, waves and slides.
The spectacular Kehräämö area houses museums and exhibition spaces that showcase the city’s history and heritage. The area has formed into a popular event location. History has been honoured by renovating the Elävienkuvien Teatteri (Theatre of Living Pictures) in the heart of the city by River Loimijoki. You can also pay a visit to the past at the Hevossilta Museum Farm in the courtyards of the 1800s and 1950s.
The town houses annually the famous Forssan Holjat urban festival, TyykiBlues music event, Pick Nick car show, Forssan Suvi-ilta marathon event, the international Silent Film Festival and many other smaller events. The Forssa area tourist information operates in the summer months alongside the cafe in the marketplace.
