Question regarding the event calendar can be directed to

The City of Turku has two main communication and marketing channels: the communication channels of the City of Turku and Visit Turku, the city's tourist office. The City of Turku's communications are mainly aimed at Turku residents and those living in the Turku region, and Visit Turku's communications are aimed at domestic and international visitors arriving in the city.

The City of Turku's communication channels

The City of Turku supports event organisers by providing informatio on the event through the City's communication channels. Adding an event to the city event calendar is the key to receiving support for communication. The calendar of events has tens of thousands of visitors every month and during the busiest times even more than 100,000 visitors, so remember to add your event well in advance! 

The event organiser is responsible for the marketing and communication materials of their event and for adding them to the event calendar. Press releases, images, logos and links should be sent coherently to the City's communication department so that they can be used in the best way possible. 

The use of the City of Turku logo in the event organiser's materials is always agreed upon separately, but the goal is that the organiser receiving communication support uses the City's logo in all their materials and mention that they are collaborating with the City of Turku. 

The decision to use the City's channels is always made by the City of Turku Communications Department.

The communication channels of the City of Turku are:

  1. The City of Turku webpage
  2. The City of Turku event calendar
    Instructions for the use of the event calendar (in Finnish)
  3. The City of Turku social medias Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  4. The Resident magazine Turkuposti, which is published four times a year (in Finnish)
  5. Event info points and in bulletins
