Kekri-All Hallows Feast IV 30.10-1.11.2015 Tuusulan Metsäpirtti
Come and celebrate the harvest season end Kekri / All Hallows Feast again with the Canton of Hukka! This event offers plentiful activities: archery, both heavy and light tournaments, singing and dancing and feasting.
Tuusulan Metsäpirtti is located at Rusutjärvi, ca. 5 km from the Tuusula municipality centre. The site’s address is Turaniementie 61, 04370 Rusutjärvi.
The site is mostly accessible for people with limited mobility. The site is in our exclusive use and consists of a main building with kitchen, dining hall and accommodations. Accomodations are on a separate wing with toilets and showers. There is also a class room for lectures. The site has also lots of outdoor space for activities such as fighting, fencing or archery.
Sauna and an outdoor barbeque place can be found down by the lake. The site has sleeping bunks for 40 people and there is a possibility to accommodate one extra person per room to sleep on the floor. There are 10 rooms with 4 beads in each. All people sleeping in beds are provided with beddings complimentary of the event site. People willing to sleep on floor are asked to bring own mattress/bed with them.
Day visitors are also very welcome to join the event, as there are plenty of spots available. Day visit includes feast.
The event is mildly damp (alcoholic beverages allowed with consideration towards others) and smoking is only allowed at the marked spots.
The site opens at 6pm on Friday and closes at noon on Sunday. Anyone still present at the site on Sunday at 12am will (voluntarily) be conscripted for site cleanup. We wish that everyone present at the event help cleaning the site so also the event team can leave the site on Sunday in a reasonable time.
