Wappu will be held in the autumn

Due to the current situation, the longest Wappu of Finland has been canceled in the spring and Autumnwappu will be held in the autumn. In the spring, however, you can participate in the WWWappu organized on LTKY’s Instagram.

The Finnish government has instructed that events and gatherings of more than 500 people should not be organized and even smaller events should be avoided. The policy is currently valid until the end of May 2020. As a result, LTKY’s board has unanimously decided to postpone its own events from the spring, including Wappu, to a later date. The transfer also applies to LTKY’s Lahti and Turku events.

However, Wappu is not a date, Wappu is a state of mind and Wappu will come this year still! LTKY is happy to present the longest Autumnwappu in Finland in conjunction with the Freshmen weeks of LUT University. The opening of Autumnwappu will be held Monday 24th of August and the main events will be held 5th and 6th of September when the crane statues will get their caps, the freshmen their baptism and the fortress of Lappeenranta its students having a picnic.

LTKY will also hold events in Lahti and Turku in autumn, but we’ll have more information on these later.
