A Sitsfest at Ilokivi brings unique joy to your academic life

A Sitsfest (‘sitsit’ in Finnish) is a traditional academic sitting meal. The common tradition in the Jyväskylä student organization scene is to include a meal, drinks and songs in the course of a set time frame. Organizations have their unique twists when it comes to the detail, but Ilokivi is a good spot for sitsfests due to its services and location. From us, you get both meal and drinks for your party.

The benefits of having a sitsfest at Ilokivi restaurant (rather than anyplace else)

  • The venue is reserved only for the sitsfest organisers for the whole night. 
  • The venue can be used to host a private after party for the guests if desired.
  • The duration of the sitsfest reservation is flexible. Unlike many restaurants in the city centre, there is no rush to open the venue for other customers. Why ruin a great atmosphere in the middle of the night, when the evening can be carried on with the same group?
  • You can use audio devices for speech and background music according to your plans
  • The venue is available for sitsfest organisers from 5.30 p.m. onwards. The party can last as long as you wish. 
  • The food is guaranteed Ilokivi quality!
  • We accommodate special dietary requirements with advance notice. 
  • Ilokivi is a legendary Student Union building and a restaurant owned by the students. 
  • The Bar is open for the duration of the Sitsfest and also for your afterparty.
