Event Details

We welcome you to join the Finnish Midsummer Party!



This spring has been challenging in many ways and we all are missing gatherings and being able to party as a community. Now you have a chance to join our online Finnish Midsummer Party with good company and food!


Our catering partner HUONE will provide you a Finnish Midsummer Festival menu to order so we can eat and feel Midsummer in town together.


The Juhannus set meal menu:


  • Lihapullia - Handmade Finnish meatballs with smoked beef sauce
  • Oven roasted Brussel sprouts with red skin potatoes, carrots and tossed with unsalted butter
  • Uusia perunoita - steam baby potatoes seasoned with salt, crushed black pepper, dill and olive oil
  • Beetroot salad and russet potatoes tossed with heavy cream and vinegar
  • Kaalikaaryle - cabbage roll with beef, marjoram leaves eggs, cooking cream and brushed with honey butter
  • Karjalanpiirakka - made using plain flour, rye flour, unsalted butter, milk, short grain rice and eggs


There is a vegetarian Juhannus set meal available and you can also create your own meal based on the given selection. Additionally, you can order your Midsummer drinks at the same time. The latest food order should be placed on June 16, at 6 pm and for drinks June 17, at 6 pm.

For children, and of course, for bigger ones as well, there will be a play session including magic and juggling by Rasmus Mäkelä and ending with Moomin story telling by Ambassador Antti Vänskä. Get ready your juggling balls, Lego bricks, mandarins etc. to learn how to juggle.
