Strömstad has a rich cultural life, the year round. Thanks to the intense tourism, there’s a continuous demand for cultural experiences and entertainment in the form of events, exhibitions, festivals and the like. The proximity to the sea and the closeness to Norway characterise the supply.

The leisure sector in Strömstad is thriving even more during the summer months, with lots of possibilities for everything connected to swimming and boating. The extensive club activities are of great importance for leisure activities for children and youths. There are many leisure facilities in the municipality. These provide the basis for a wide variety in sports and athletics.
