Elephantasy

The most elephantastic picnic of the year…

The annual main event of Funky Amigos is the urban festival Elephantasy – Funky Family Picnic, which is part of the Alppipuiston kesä summer event series. Free entry and no age limit, so families are warmly welcome!

Elephantasy, celebrating diversity in rhythm music and cultures, brings you unique live shows, dance, workshops, world street food and a children’s area with activities to the idyllic Alppipuisto park in Helsinki. It’s always a great opportunity to enjoy a picnic and a beautiful day at the most adorable park of the city! The happy, joyful and warm-hearted celebration of urban culture has been organized in the same location every year since 2009, excluding only year 2020.

The event, which was cancelled because of Covid-19 in 2020, was compensated on 6th of February, 2021 by a brand new winter edition of it titled Elephantasy – Funky Winter Splash and organized as a live stream in Suvilahti, Helsinki. The plans to organize the traditional Elephantasy – Funky Family Picnic summer event in Alppipuisto in the summer of 2021 are still actively on.

In 2007, Elephantasy was also organized once inside the inner yeard of the so called Elanto Block in Kallio (in the address of Kaikukatu 4, Helsinki).
