Held on 5–7 July in Ruissalo, Turku, Ruisrock is also a celebration for foodies. While visitors’ stomachs were filled with pea soup at the first festival, the 50th Ruisrock presents a wide selection of local, organic, and vegetarian foods, without forgetting classic festival treats.
Bistro Niemellä is Returning to Niemennokka
Bistro Niemellä is returning to Ruisrock in the form of a magnificent venue on the seashore.The restaurant takes table reservations and allows customers to enjoy a full three-course meal with an appetizer, entrée, and dessert.
The other restaurants at the festival showcase modern flavors from near and far. Ruisrock’s home town of Turku is represented by e.g. the hugely popular Japanese restaurant Karu as well as Roots Kitchen, famed for its delicious vegetarian dishes. The trending burger phenomenon is boosted by Bun2Bun, known for its vegan burgers; Heimo Burger, focusing on organic and local food; as well as Ruisrock’s very own Burger Kiosks that serve halloumi & avocado burgers and cheese burgers according to audience wishes. Subway® serves fresh fast rood and offers direct views of the legendary Rantalava Stage.
Special diets have been given more thought, and almost all the restaurants at the festival provide gluten-free or vegan options by request.
Ruisrock’s Wine Bottle Crowns the Anniversary Year Drinks Menu
The anniversary year can also be seen in the drinks menu of the event. Festival goers can enjoy the birthday bottle Cono Sur Bicicleta Rosé, dedicated by wine house Cono Surto the 50th Ruisrock. The wine can already be found in Alko and will be available at Ruisrock.
The beer supply at the festival is once again managed by Sinebrychoff, which will soon turn 200 years old. In addition to the shiny, red KOFF beers, all the novelty drinks of Sinebrychoff’s anniversary year will be available. BEER & BEER bar will also serve a long list of craft and special beers from hoppy to sour, and visitors can cool off on a hot summer’s day with the wheat beer 1664 Blanc.
