Tori Quarters’ Street Festival
The Tori Quarters' Street Festival is here again and it's glorious as ever! All the best bits from earlier years have been chosen for this year's festival in order to make it an unforgettable party for everyone: Music, good food, tasty drinks, happy atmosphere and entertainment for both children and adults.
The Tori Quarters are the New Old Town of Helsinki, a unique and historic area between the Market Square and the Senate Square. This Summer Tori Quarters are finally fully renovated and as beautiful as it gets, so it's time for some proper celebration. The annual Tori Quarters' Street Festival is now held on the entire area. Tori Quarters include beautiful inner yards with 16 restaurants and caffees, two walking avenues with terraces and beautiful buildings and much more.
The program lasts for the entire day offering something for everyone.
The music program starts at noon. The Lunch Concert is held in Bryggeri Helsinki’s terrace where the menu is made to fit the African vibed music. Next is up the children’s band Jytäjyrsijät in Katariinankatu street.
At 3 pm the touching M takes the stage. Her sound will surely charm anyone, no matter the age or gender. In the early evening Pekko Käppi comes and spices things up with energetic and danceable rhymes.
