The Baltic Herring Fair

Would love to visit Finland one day!

Beautiful Helsinki

The Baltic Herring Fair is the oldest traditional event in Helsinki. It has been held since 1743…and what perfect weather there has been so far this year for the outdoor festivities.

Baltic fishermen bring in their fish to sell, along with lots of other delicious things to eat.

There are colourful stalls selling handmade clothing and wooden items.

You can sit and enjoy delicious seafood, coffee and cakes and take in the lovely sunshine.

You might have to share something with the large and persistent seagulls.

The festival runs until 10th October in market square beside the harbour.
