The Sinkkola petting zoo at Pesolantie 2 in Noljakka, Joensuu, will open for the summer on Tuesday, 22.5. Visitors are welcome from Tuesdays to Sundays from 9-17.00 until 31.8.  Due to extended period of snowfall in spring, the season begins later than last year.

The grand opening will be on Sunday, 28.5. from 10.00 to 12.00. There will be pony-riding and other activities for the little ones as well as a sneak preview of the play Around the World in 80 Days, which will be performed at Sinkkola this summer. The cafeteria will be open as usual.

On 20.6. Sinkkola will hold a cultural event with community art, aimed especially at young adults.

Otherwise, grazing animals, a summer cafe and theatre will play key roles in Sinkkola's summer season. In addition, the traditional smithy and kids' adventure tours will be part of the season's programme. Story-telling is a weekly event. Come and see your animal friends!
