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.

Free events across the city, around the clock, are encouraged to join in the Helsinki Day programme.

You can register your event for the Helsinki Day programme using the online form and by logging in to the website by 12 May. You can also use the form to apply for a production grant for your event. The deadline for applications for production grants is 31 March. You can find more detailed information in the event organiser’s guide.
