Restaurant Days in Helsinki

A food carnival when anyone can open a restaurant

Restaurant Day is created by thousands of people organizing and visiting pop-up restaurants worldwide. The idea is to have fun, share new food experiences and enjoy our common living environments together. 

Pop-up restaurants can be opened and local food carnivals can happen anytime and anywhere. List yours on the Restaurant Day map or check out what’s there to eat near you. Restaurant Day is facilitated by a team of volunteers who also maintain this website. All restaurateurs are personally responsible for all actions related to running their restaurants.

Restaurant Day’s birthday is celebrated annually with a big global food carnival every third Saturday of May. That’s the day when we all open pop-up restaurants together worldwide.
