On Turku Day 18 September all students have the opportunity to get to know their home town by participating in cheerful Turku Day Appro!

The City of Turku invites students to explore their hometown on Turku Day, 18th of September. The Appro is free of charge. At the Appro, participants visit different Turku Day events and collect stamps on their Appropass. After collecting enough stamps, participants will get overall badges for finishing their degree.

The Turku Day Appro is held for the second time. It is a fun and interesting way to get to know the city of Turku and to celebrate Turku Day with friends. There are many events participating in Turku Day Appro and they are all free of charge. The participating events include the museums of Turku Museum Center, City hall, Turkuseura and Kakolanmäki.

There is no need to preregister for the Appro, however there are only 800 Appropasses available. The Appropasses can be picked up starting at the Appro Info tent, from 10 am on Turku Day. The Info tent is at the Vanha Suurtori (Old Great Square).

You have between 10 am and 6 pm to complete the Appro and stamped Appropasses are exchanged for overall badges until 6.45 pm at the Appro Info tent. Six stamps are required to obtain overall badges of the Appro. The Appro has two levels: with 9 stamps you achieve the title of  “Junantuoma turkulainen” (a citizen of Turku that arrived by train), and with 12 stamps you achieve the title of  “Paljasjalkaine turkulainen” (a barefooted Åboriginal).

Gather your own ”Turku society”, put on your overalls and go on an adventure in Turku! During the day you will find out if you are a “junantuoma turkulainen” or a real “paljasjalkaine”.

The organizer reserves the right to make changes.
