Hertunranta park area, Huruslahdenranta

Mon 12.6. at 10.00

The lively brass music of the Varkaus Brass Band will lead the festival crowd to the park celebration in Hertunranta. The mascot of Vekara-Varkaus, Lehtevämies will host the opening ceremony and sing his favourite songs accompanied by Anssi Huotari. The opening ceremony will be headlined by Ville Karttunen, a children’s musician and author whose linguistically rich and down-to-earth songs have won awards, including the New Children’s Song of the Year competition. We also get a taste of the star attraction of Monday evening in Warkaus-sali, the medieval circus performance of the Säilättäret group, the Holy Pear Legend.

In the park, you can make giant soap bubbles and water gun painting. A buffet will be provided by the UNICEF Varkaus volunteer group (cash payment), Vekara-Varkaus will provide juice for all visitors. There will also be frienly dogs by Tassukamut, Morton’s Tuomas dog and an ice cream trolley.


A little rain won’t scare the organisers, so be prepared for the weather. Bring your own blanket to sit on during the programme. If you want, you can dress up in fancy dress and make the park party even more colourful!

Free admission
