Celebrate Pride in Helsinki
Helsinki is another Scandinavian Pride destination and LGBT can expect a warm welcome in any Scandinavian country. Finland is no exception to this open-minded atmosphere.
Helsinki hosts a Pride Week each year. This year, Helsinki Pride Week is planned for 24 June until 30 June 2019. Last year, 90 LGBT activities and events were organized during Pride Week in Helsinki. 2019 will be no different and there will be a new abundance in activities and festivities. Keep an eye on the Helsinki Pride website to find out more about the different Pride Events as they get scheduled.
The highlight of Pride Week is, of course, the Pride Parade and a Park Fest Party on the 29th of June. Last year, over 100 thousand people attended Helsinki Pride. This year, will you be one of them?
