Hurraa Festival from 12 to 20 March 2022. Children’s lives go on and performing arts offer a place to deal with emotions from curiosity to joy and sadness.

The municipal cultural services of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, in cooperation with ASSITEJ Finland, organise the Hurraa! festival of performing arts for children and young people on 12–20 March 2022. The festival offers high-quality performances for children, young people and families in the cultural centres of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The programme includes physical theatre, circus, dance and puppet theatre. Traditionally known as a showcase for fresh Finnish performance art, the 2022 Hurraa! festival will also feature international performances produced by ASSITEJ Finland.
