Viaporin Kekri

Viaporin Kekri

Viaporin Kekri is a modern interpretation of an old tradition, and an experiment in creating new meanings out of centuries-old beliefs and customs. It gives its visitors a unique chance to explore and experience Suomenlinna islands from a new perspective and see its darkest corners that are usually closed for the public.

7th edition of Viaporin Kekri will be celebrated this year on the 6th of November, in Suomenlinna. During the one-day celebration, you can enjoy the beer fest, beer and wine tastings, scavenger hunt and traditionally focal part of the event is kekri buck burning accompanied with fire and music performance. The event is carefully crafted for Suomenlinna visitors, built up for fine storytelling, lively performances, immersive experiences, and unique atmosphere. Although the entrance to the event is free of charge and suitable for all age groups, some activities require booking and entrance fee.
