Morning coffee with the mayor

Event Introduction

Helsinki Day will be launched with the traditional morning coffee hosted by Mayor Juhana Vartiainen.

The capital city’s official delicacy, rhubarb pie, will be served to 1,000 people at the opening of Helsinki Day in the City Hall Event Square. Visitors can also see the City Hall balcony and take a peek into the mayor’s office. Helsinki Art Museum’s (HAM) guides will talk about the works of art in the City Hall. Deputy mayors Johanna Laisaari, Anni Sinnemäki, Paavo Arhinmäki and Daniel Sazonov will also be meeting visitors during the event.

The coffee break will include entertainment, with music by two duos of students of the Pop & Jazz Conservatory: Hanna and Andrea, and Andrea and Lume.


360 Feast Helsinki room

Feast Helsinki is a three-week celebration of Helsinki’s world-class food and beverage scene that kicks off on 24 May. One of the highlights of the festival is the 360° Feast Helsinki room in the lobby of the City Hall, which will open to the public on 29 May. Come envelope yourself in a stimulating multisensory Helsinki experience!

What kind of food-related moments do we cherish and how do we share these experiences? How is Helsinki’s nature, sea, local markets and neighbourhood cafes a part of us and our culinary adventures? The immersive 360° Feast Helsinki room allows you to appreciate the full sensory spectrum of sights, sounds and gastronomic delicacies that are available at the Feast Helsinki food festival. The room was created collaboratively by the City of Helsinki’s Communications Department and the students of the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Science.


More information about accessibility:

There is a drop-off point near the entrance (distance up to 5 metres).
The route is even, sufficiently wide for wheelchairs and illuminated. The entrance doors are clearly visible. There is enough space to move around in a wheelchair outside the door. The door is heavy, and the draught lobby is cramped. There is a toilet on the same floor as the entrance; its door is difficult to open and close.
