The highlight of the whole year, the Teekkari Dipping, will be held on Saturday 11.9. 12-18.
The event will be streamed! You can follow the dipping at teekkarikaste.fi!
Teekkari Dipping is one of the cornerstones of teekkari culture in Tampere. We want to offer the opportunity to be dipped to all students who started their studies in the field of technology at the University of Tampere in the academic year 2020-2021. Read more about the Wappu traditions of teekkaris and Teekkari Dipping here.
Due to the current situation, Teekkari Dipping has required a considerable amount of special arrangements. The dipping area, the eastern side of Koskenranta, will be fenced. Only fuksis attending the dipping, as well as the event stewards and other staff, can enter the area. Fuksis to be dipped will receive more detailed instructions from their own guild’s fuksi captains closer to the event.
Any audience arriving at the scene will be diverted out of the area. However, if you want to follow the dipping of your own guild, friend or relative, we hope that you will follow the dipping on the west side of Koskipuisto and leave the Koskipuisto area after. It is also important to remember the safety intervals when in the audience and the use of a face mask is recommended.
We hope that as many avid viewers as possible would watch the dipping remotely through the stream instead of coming to the scene.
We will publish the guild dipping schedule on Friday 10.9. after the results of the Jäynä competition have been resolved. Unfortunately, the traditional version of the Fuksi Parade cannot be organized this year.
