About the Eksjö Tattoo

“International music with military overtones”

Thus can the Eksjö International Tattoo be described from a purely musical standpoint, but the experience is greater than this – it is a magnificent, colourful and spectacular show in the heart of the wooden town of Eksjö. A special feature of the Eksjö International Tattoo is that it is held in the middle of the town in an arena surrounded by houses dating from the 16th century, the church, the hotel and a proud equestrian statue creating the background scenery. This is an environment which stimulates both the participants and the public.

The arena has seating for more than 2 000 persons coming from far and near. Visitors come from the region around Dalarna and from further south. The tattoo is of interest to persons of all ages – from families with children to senior citizens. The Eksjö International Tattoo is also a popular attraction for coach tour operators, and a recurrent attraction where the trip is combined with a meal, a coffee break and sightseeing in the Eksjö town centre.
