Proposal for the first Sunday in August: Picnic delicacies ready, blanket under the arm, good company and a step towards Alppipuisto close to Linnanmäki! FiBO's musicians play both baroque music and pieces from the classicist era. In addition, the program features chi kung, which is calm series of movements.

From Saturday July 17 until Sunday August 1 the Alppipuisto Summer event offers different styles of music every weekend, ranging from baroque through folk music to afro jazz and psytrance. Alppipuisto’s own pages can be found here. The events are organized in cooperation with the City of Helsinki.
