Vappu

Vappu (known as Saint Walpurga's or May Day in the English-speaking world) is the biggest student event of the academic year in Finland. Vappu is celebrated in a carnival-style manner in both Joensuu and Kuopio, often for several weeks at a time.

Each campus, club and organisation has their own traditional events during Vappu. Make sure to join in the celebrations at the end of April and the beginning of May!

More information about Vappu and a more detailed programme of events can be found on the website, nearer the time
