What's happening in Helsinki

Restaurant Day November 15th

Held approximately once every three months, Restaurant Day represents urban culture at its best. Based on voluntary participation and own initiative, anyone can open a popup restaurant for the day. Popular places include parks, street corners and courtyards, as well as private apartments and offices. The inspiration behind the event is to share restaurant experiences, have fun and enjoy the community.
