Ask anyone – it is the spectators that make a Championship great. A roaring crowd of enthusiastic fans is what makes the athletes push their boundaries and doubles the adrenaline rush. Åre 2019 will create that special atmosphere, not just at the Arena, but throughout the town.
The side event program will pay homage to winter sports, Åre and the Jämtland region and their history. Skijoring, Super Sprint, Rail Jam and much more will feature among the events in the side event program as visitors and athletes alike will be treated to something extraordinary. The Sámi culture and Valentine's Day will be celebrated, and a number of cool music acts will take place on different stages. Check out some of the side events below. At the bottom of this page you may find information about our sponsor village, Åre Town Square, the Medals Plaza and a map for directions.
More information and more events will follow shortly.
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TOWN
MEDALS PLAZA (the park)
The park located between Åre Square and Åre Station will be converted into an amphitheater-like event stage during Åre 2019. This is where the Opening Ceremony, various music acts and the award ceremonies will take place. Other activities will include the bib draws, various cultural programs and live shows.
Åre torg (town square) is where you may find most shops and restaurants in Åre.
