Welcome to Finland's biggest largest human rights celebration and cultural event! This year's theme is Joy & Riot. Joy represents the joy that characterises the identity of the Pride movement and the diverse nature of our society where we are equal, seen and proud. Riot represents the right to exist, be seen and be heard, and it honours the history and roots of the Pride movement.
In 2023, Helsinki Pride will be loud and proud, and you are warmly invited to be part of this community!
Helsinki Pride Week offers a series of thought-provoking workshops and colourful events. We're especially looking forward to:
The Pride Parade – 1 July 2023
Helsinki Pride Week's main event is the Pride Parade on Saturday. The parade commences at 1pm from the Senate Square and dances its way through the city toward the Kaivopusto Park, where the main party kicks off with a picnic.
Pride House – open all week
We are so proud to say that Klaus K Hotel is this year's Pride House, the hub of Pride Week! Come here to listen to various panel discussions, seminars, workshops and other events. It's a great place to learn more about the Pride movement and gain greater understanding of the key issues. Pride House is open for everyone, so come on in!
