Event organiser’s guide

The city is yours – let’s make it happen!

Helsinki’s birthday will be celebrated once again on 12 June 2021. During the day, all kinds of free events will be held throughout the city and its local districts. Helsinki Day has become a city-wide festival that offers lots to see and do for people of all ages.

This year, Helsinki Day is looking for acts to mark the city’s birthday. We are looking for creative acts to be included in the Helsinki Day programme. The acts should be visible and audible across the city to delight the public on 12 June but without gathering people together. The application process is now open, and the acts for the programme will be selected by public vote.

Helsinki Day acts can be related to arts, nature or enlivening the urban environment, for example – what is important is that as many Helsinki residents as possible get to celebrate the occasion in their hometown.

Further information on the application process can be found here. Come up with an act and get involved!
