Joansoka - A Regional Festival in Suduroy

Jóansøka (Sct. John's Festival or Midsummer Festival) is the local festival in Suðuroy. Every second year it is held in Tvøroyri and every second year in Vágur. In 2009 it was in Tvøroyri.

Since 2005 there has been a music festival as well at the same time, but not every year, in 2008 there was no music festival in Suðuroy. In 2009 the Midsummer Festival was in Tvøroyri and the profit was for the Salt Silo in Drelnes near Tvøroyri. There is a project which plans to make the former Salt Silo into a Cultural Center.
