06.12.2021 - 06.12.2021 |Kuopio

The Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY) has the honor to invite all students to the Independence Day Torch Parade on 6.12.2021 in Kuopio. The Torch Parade is one of the oldest and most respected traditions of the Student Union.

The parade starts at the Sotku (Sotilaskoti, Suokatu 42), where students are asked to arrive at the latest at 5.45 pm. Presidents of the local student organisations will be carrying their own pennants.

The parade will depart at 6 pm, we stop to lay a wreath on the soldiers’ grave and, finally, we arrive at the town square. The first vice-chair of the Student Union, Riku Kiviluoto, will give a speech at the town square, followed by the Finnish National Anthem.

ISYY welcomes you to join us in creating an Independence Day with a student outlook, but please leave your student overalls home this time!
