Espoo Day 25–27 August 2017
The most eagerly awaited city event in Espoo

Biggest ever Espoo Day attracts 75,000 visitors to nearly 300 events

On the last weekend of August, the Espoo summer season culminated in an urban celebration for the entire community. To mark 100 years of Finnish independence, this year’s Espoo Day was bigger than ever before, making it one of the largest of the series of Together events organised across Finland as part of the centenary celebrations. A team of more than 3,000 people were involved in creating Espoo Day, successfully delivering nearly 300 events for visitors. In total, the weekend saw a record-breaking 75,000 people enjoy the event across the city. Next year’s Espoo Day is again set to take place on the last weekend of August.
