The City of Porvoo and the Santa Claus Foundation have entered into a partnership, which has made Porvoo the official City of Goodwill. Porvoo has long worked for an atmospheric Christmas, by associations, entrepreneurs and the city.
The Santa Claus Foundation's mission is to promote the well-being of the world's children and to develop and maintain a global image of Finland as a real Christmas country and as Santa's homeland.
With the partnership, Porvoo has also received its own elf, Fredrik Flodbåt, and his story can be found here.

With respect for tradition, Christmas streets are opened in Old Porvoo.
Since the 1950s, the entrepreneurs of Old Porvoo have organized this charming event created with the same recipe, which looks, sounds, smells and, of course, tastes like Christmas.
Baked with slightly new spices, the Christmas opening lasts throughout the first advent weekend. Boutiques are open until 18:00 on Saturday and 17:00 on Sunday.
Cafés and restaurants will welcome you to enjoy and enjoy the unique Old Porvoo Christmas atmosphere.
Welcome to listen to Santa's greetings and sing Christmas songs with the elves!
