3 ways to celebrate the Espoo Day
Organize an event
Espoo Day is based on non-profit events created by local people. Therefore hosting your own event is a great way to take part in celebration of the city. You can find some tips and instructions on how to organize an event from our website or from the Instructions for event organisers created by the city of Espoo
If hosting your own event is not possible or you are not interested in doing so, you can always participate in someone else’s event. Take a look of the Espoo Day event listing and see what kinds of events are created in your neighbourhood. Or maybe you could do a tour around the city and get yourself familiar with other sides of Espoo as well?
Have a yard sale
This year you can participate in Espoo Day by hosting your own flea market or yard sale. The theme for this years Espoo Day is circular economy, so we want to encourage everyone to participate in celebration of the city by either selling your useless belongings or looking for hidden treasures from other’s yard sales. You can either register your own yard sale or come and sell your belongings individually for example in Träskända park.
