Free events will take over the city and its districts on Helsinki Day, 12 June. Helsinki Day, which has been celebrated since 1959, has become a shared city festival that offers plenty of events and activities for all residents.
The Helsinki Day programme is coordinated by the Helsinki Events Foundation, but the real content of the programme is created by various associations, clubs and organisations as well as private individuals and departments of the City of Helsinki. This means that the day’s programme is different each year: a versatile and surprising collection of events.
