Come and celebrate the start of summer season in Korpo!

On the second Saturday in June, all residents in Korpo gather for a joint party to celebrate the start of the summer season.

Every year, fun activities for both young and old are organised in the market square, Kyrkbyn (island center), Korpocenter and Verkan (note that the programme starts later at Verkan).
