"The Venetians", as this type of celebration is called by the locals, are common in the Oulu region to celebrate the end of the summer season and to welcome the approaching autumn. The beautiful garden area will be decorated by local florist students with flower art, lanterns and lights that twinkle in the darkening evening. The plentiful locally sourced dinner will be served under crystal chandeliers, in a heated tent located in the garden area, and will be followed by the live band Millsbay, fire art performance by Tulikukat, and a possibility to take a guided tour in the unique pyramid-shaped glasshouses of the Botanical Gardens.

The dinner card of 65€ can be purchased until August 22 via the online registration system (choose option "Venetian garden party only"). You can also pay on site, but pre-booking by Aug 22 is still needed. Type in "pay on site" in the Notes field when adding your personal information, and select invoice as your payment method.
