Since 1954, we have celebrated the fishing party in Dalstuga; welcome to a long-standing tradition for all ages.
Fishing has played a significant role in Dalstuga over time, not least due to the annual Fishing Festival. It was 1954 when Anders Herdin decided to throw a party in the village. He talked to Konrad Olars, Ivar Kullerback and Hilmas Olle, all of whom lived in Dalstuga. Rowing boats were borrowed from nearby towns, which the contenders could use to fish from. At the time, it was a burning interest in fishing that drove the event to a reality.
Over the years, Fiskefesten grew into an ever-larger event. At one point, the area could count on up to 10,000 visitors during the Fishing Festival's heydays in the 70s, an almost inconceivable figure by today's standards. Today, the Fishing Festival is organized on a non-profit basis with the help of the village's residents and the help of the holiday home owners in the town.
