Runokuu - Poetry Moon Festival

Helsinki's week-long literature festival in August

Poetry Moon is the oldest literature festival in Helsinki. Nuoren Voiman Liitto organizes the festival every August in co-operation with Helsinki Festival and dozens of other partners. Poetry Moon unites artists and audiences through diverse events and a unique yearly program that is mostly free of charge. The next Poetry Moon Festival will be held in 22—28 August 2016. The program includes over 40 events from workshops and literary walks to readings and multi-artistic performances. The festival invites every year around 200 artists from Finland and abroad.
