May Day celebrations at Vårdberget in Åbo

Students, spring is here!

Welcome to participate in the traditional celebrations of the May Day (also known as Wappen), that the Student Union of Åbo Akademi University (ÅAS), together with Finnish public broadcaster YLE, arranges at the park in Vårdberget in Åbo April 30 at 6–7 p.m. The event will include a procession of flags, choir singing from Brahe Djäknar and Florakören, and a speech by Veera Granroth, the Chair of the Board of ÅAS.

This is an event you don’t want to miss! Take your student cap with you, and celebrate May Day at the largest annual student event at Vårdberget. Feel free to use the hashtag #ÅboWapp22 in your social media to share the celebrations with others.

After the celebrations at Vårdberget it is time to walk down to Kåren to continue the party at the traditional May Day dinner, with ÅAS and the Nations, if you have registrated for the event beforehand. Otherwise you can check out if your association organizes program or celebrate as you like.
