Just a quick note reminding about Taiteiden Yö (Night of the Arts) that’s celebrated today allover Helsinki. It’s an annual art festival as a part of Helsinki Festival, a series of different kinds of events during August.
This year I haven’t had the time to actually plan on what to do and where to go but I was planning on seeing at least these ones:
- The Secret Garden on Senate Square
Last year this garden was almost next door from my home and the atmosphere was very cosy and nice. They had workshops for kids, couple of bands and artists playing on the garden and some snacks available. This year the Secret Garden will be built to Senate Square so hopefully they will manage to make it as magical as last year.
2. One Pint Pub: Bellydance, Blues and Jazz
Not really interested in bellydance but this is our local with an amazing selection of craft beers all over the world. Support your local!
4. Mattolaituri night of arts
If the weather is good (as it should be), I think I’ll take my city bike (the yellow Alepa-bikes I wrote about in May) and make a short tour around the city. One of the pit stops will most likely be Mattolaituri in Kaivopuisto park to listen to some DJ’s and see their light installations. I can imagine it to be pretty cool in a dark August night.
