Guard’s Parade and MIL Espa concert: Guards Band

Welcome to attend a public event with the longest heritage in Finland! In summer 2022, the Helsinki Garrison will again arrange the Guard’s Parades as before.

The Guard’s Parades of the current type began to be held in the mid-2000s but their history extends way back to the 1750s. As of 1919, the Guard’s Parades and the accompanying concerts in the park continue a tradition that has witnessed only a few discontinuations to date.


In summer 2022, the Guard’s Parades will always start the marching movement at the Senate Square at 12:30 to advance via the Kauppatori Square to the Main Guard to return along the Esplanade to the closing formation at the Kasarmitori Square.


Following the Guard’s Parade from 14:00 onwards, the Conscript Band of the Guards Band will perform a wide selection of vibrant and entertaining pop music pieces. While in military service, these young musicians perform in tens of events held for official invites, and now they perform at this summer concert!


The event has free admission.
