Viaporin Kekri is an ancient tradition brought back and rejuvenated to become a new shared experience for Helsinki citizens and visitors.
Created with respect and consideration for Suomenlinna’s past, Viaporin Kekri is an opportunity to explore Finnish history, a modern interpretation of an old tradition, and an experiment in creating new meanings out of centuries-old believes and customs. It gives its visitors a unique chance to explore and experience Suomenlinna islands from a new perspective and see its darkest corners that are usually closed for the general public.
The event contains storytelling, lively performances, immersive experiences, and unique atmosphere.
The festival is a result of collaboration between Haaga-Helia’s students of bachelor's degree Programme in Hospitality, Tourism and Experience Management, the Governing Body of Suomenlinna, the island’s service providers, and businesses from mainland Helsinki.
