2nd of November 2019, Suomenlinna
The winter in Finland is long, grim, and inescapable, and we have no choice but to embrace its arrival. Come to Suomenlinna to celebrate the long-forgotten festival of Kekri and look at the face of darkness with no fear.
The program for 2019 is published soon.
On Kekri, the past breaks into the now, and the new arises from the old transforming the island and revealing its secrets. The souls of the dead return to the world of living, and people wallow in food, music, art, and games celebrating the last rays of light and the rich harvest.
