Guard’s Parade and MIL Espa concert: Conscript Band of the Finnish Defence Forces

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, the Show Band of the FDF Conscript Band will perform on the Espa stage from 13:30 onwards. The Show Band will engage the audience with their drifting groove, stamina and vigour. And their well-thought arrangements of top radio hits on both Finnish and international charts are bound to put a smile on everyone’s face!
