Join us on the spot in the HaliPuu forest as we welcome our first live viewers to the TreeHugging World Championships 2022, Saturday 20th of August at 13:00 Finnish time.
Until now we have only had virtual viewers for our already world famous competitions, but this year you have a chance to witness this noble contest as a live spectator! Just like before, this years competition consists of three parts (with some new elements added):
• Speedhugging: Most trees hugged in two minutes. In a clearly marked area, hugging as many trees as possible in one minute, each hug lasting minimum five seconds
• Dedication: Most dedicated hug of a specific tree of the contestant’s choice lasting maximum one minute
• Freestyle: Most creative hug. Style open to contestant’s own interpretation, one tree only, lasting maximum one minute
As a viewer you are an important part of the event, as we cheer for our international participants and enjoy their wonderful, creative and sometimes hilarious performances. This is an afternoon of fun, laughter and pine scented cuddles.
ONLY 40 TICKETS AVAILABLE. Ticket price includes entrance, warm juice and a small snack. Children and friendly & quiet pets are welcome. The event will be streamed live to an international audience. Read about previous TreeHugging World Championships events HERE
