The Defence Forces 100 - Summer Tour 2018 includes all in all 16 localities in June and August. The tour celebrating our 100th anniversary will begin in Seinäjoki on the Flag Day of the Defence Forces and end in Turku in August.

In connection with these events, the public will have the opportunity to become familiar with present day military service for men and voluntary military service for women. It will also be possible to visit equipment exhibitions and see military displays arranged by the local brigade-level units. The summer tour's evenings will end with open air concerts suitable for the whole family performed by the Finnish military bands.

Defence Foces 100 Combat Exhibition is a spectacular part of this public event.

The Air Force’s Big Band will be along for the whole tour. The soloists include the superb Diandra and Janna,  during August month a lovely trio The Blackbirds. At the end of the tour the Navy Band will take the stage together with the lovely duo Ida Paul and Kalle Lindroth. In every locality, the Conscript Band of the Defence Forces' show band will perform their energetic show, featuring the best performers from each age group.
