The Full Moon Dance Festival was organized for the first time in 1992. The festival was hosted by the town of Pyhäjärvi, which had been a lively location for dance for over twenty years. The unusual enthusiasm for dance in this municipality of 7000 inhabitants is known as the 'Pyhäjärvi Miracle'. Almost all the major figures in modern dance in Finland have come here to perform and teach. In 1998 the festival was accepted as a member of Finland Festivals, which includes the country's leading cultural festivals. In 1999, Finland Festivals nominated the Full Moon Dance Festival the Festival of the Year.
