Knit Fest would not be complete without the great night party! This summer the party is held Friday 6th of July, at Ainola. It is an old dance hall near the city centre.
Tickets are available on 4th of May, 10 AM, from ZUPticket.
Ticket to the party is 12 euros.
Ticket to the party with the cruise is 20 euros.
The doors are open from 6 PM.
We offer you a relaxed atmosphere, where you can get to know new people and have a great time with friends. The program includes some numbers, but we want you to have time to talk, knit and laugh on your own. Ainola has an indoor space as well as a great lawn to spend time. Our teachers are welcome to bring their merchandices to sell, and there will be Knit Fest items available too.
As mentioned, we have some numbers in our program. . Jonna Hietala, who is known for Laine Magazine is going to interview our teachers and vendors. Also during the evening Ann Myhre will tell us what it is like to be a knitwear designer in Norway. We have a dj entertaining us and a local street restaurant Taikuri is coming to cook delicious meals. They also serve soft drinks. No alcohol is served at the location, but you are welcome to bring your own drinks with you if you want to. Also, take cash along, there are no possibility to pay by card.
The detailed program is still a work in process. We will inform you when everything is set up. You may still want to purchase your ticket in advance, since they are limited! Tickets are sold via ZUPticket. If they don’t sell out, tickets are available on the party night at Ainola gates from 6 PM.
We sell also tickets with transport to the party. A cruise ship m/s Satu will take passengers from the Alba dock, the ship makes a 30 min cruise in Jyväsjärvi and arrives to Ainola deck at 18:30. These tickets are limited to 30 tickets.
