Turun Messut – Turku General Fair 2017

In August 2017, the biggest general fair in Finland provides visitors with four days filled with nice experiences, joyful spirit and great purchases. Last time this biannual event was held, it attracted 21,000 visitors and around 220 exhibitors.


Turku Fair Center is full during Turku General Fair 2017. All four indoor halls and outdoor area together guarantees easy access and create huge event atmosphere. In the outdoor is seen impressive action shows produced by the Finnish Defence Forces as well as their widely known delicious doughnuts and soup kitchen.

In 2017 hosts of the Turku General Fair are Turun Sanomat and Finnish Defence Forces. There are also several other partners in the fair. Eläkkeensaajat ry and Eläkeliitto organize Senior Citizens Day. City of Turku together with Tekniikan Akatemia plans a special program for the younger members of the families. The highlight of the weekend might also be performances by the popular Moomins and Hevisaurus or ever so energetic Dudesons.


We want everyone to enjoy their stay in Turku General Fair. You can find a stage in every hall, packed up with shows about wellness, pets and Suomi100 celebration. Fashion shows, musical performances and concerts and other numbers are sure to be remembered.
