Food, drinks and shopping

Some of the boutiques and markets at Pieksämäki and Naarajärvi (suburb) have extended opening hours on Saturday. Event takes place right in the middle of downtown Pieksämäki so you can leave your car on the scene and walk to the cafes and restaurants.  You can find coffee and food stands also from the event area.

Because Big Wheels is an all-family event, there is no alcohol served on the event area – but just outside the gates you can find several pubs and bars.



Hotel Savonsolmu – a retroish hotel just outside the event area. Some of the rooms even have a view to the Big Wheels. Street address Toikantie 9, 76100 PIEKSÄMÄKI Phone. +358 15 223 50, E-mail: Web:
