As autumn turns to winter, evenings get darker and the frost arrives in Finland, students retire to hibernation to wait for the dawn of spring. In winter, school deadlines and the endless need for coffee are a part of everyday life. But in Turku everything is different. Something looms on the horizon. What is it?
Pikkulaskiainen introduces: Pikkulaskiainen 2022 – 30 Years of Winter Festivals! 30th Pikkulaskiainen will be celebrated bigger than ever!
Pikkulaskiainen will be held on February 10th 2022.
What is Pikkulaskiainen?
The student event consists of a legendary downhill race, pub crawl and the glorious afterparties with front-line artists.
It begins with Pikkulaskiainen’s legendary downhill race, where teams will be sliding downhill with fantastic race vehicles. Come and see what kind crazy things students have come up with this year! The pub crawl is a great opportunity to get acquainted with Turku’s rich restaurant and bar culture, while numerous food and beverage shops are included in the tour. You can collect stamps from bars and restaurants and after a certain amount of stamps you are entitled to a special badge for your overalls. The winter festival culminates in wild afterparties that continue until morning accompanied by front-line artists.
