Midsummer in Helsinki

21 June 2024 - 22 June 2024


00250, Helsinki, Uusimaa, Helsinki, Finland

Join the vibrant festivities of Midsummer in Helsinki, where the summer solstice is embraced with unique traditions. While many Finns retreat to their summer cottages, Helsinki comes alive, especially on the islands off the coast. Seurasaari, a recreational island, sets the stage for official Midsummer celebrations, dating back over 60 years.

In the afternoon on Midsummer’s Eve, the island echoes with joy as a wedding couple takes center stage, waltzing on the main stage before lighting the bonfire from a traditional church boat. Other popular spots for bonfires and celebrations include Pihlajasaari, Kaivopuisto Park, and the Tali allotment gardens. Midsummer dances at Linnanmäki and Kivinokka add to the festive spirit.

Recent years have seen festivals on city beaches and islands, offering new ways to experience the celebrations. Consider a Midsummer Cruise to witness shoreline bonfires or relax in a traditional Midsummer Sauna at one of Helsinki's public saunas.
