Frequently Asked Questions
When are the tickets going on sale?
We don't have an exact date yet. Don't worry, whenever those go on sale we will post on our social media channels so you don't miss out the chance to get early bird prices (smile) For that respect, we encourage you follow us on Facebook
Are the dates for the EJC 2020 final?
Yes, those are the dates for the Convention. We know those might be challenging for you, as usually EJC dates are a bit later. The reason for choosing 11.07-19.07 is that Finnish summer holiday season happens then and since we are offering schools as accommodation we needed to take that into account. Also, we were requested by the hosting city to hold the event to those dates to avoid collisions with other events happening in Hanko in the summer.
I wanna be part of the EJC. How can I contribute to the event?
We are thrilled to have you as part of the EJC 2020 family. As you know, EJC is a volunteer organised event, so all help we can get is highly appreciated. It doesn't matter if you can commit full time, or just a few hours a month, before or during the event. In that sense, there are three main types of collaboration:
I have a shop / I'm an artisan / I have a restaurant-bakery-coffee shop-food truck, can I sell my products on ECJ?
Yes, we are planning to host vendors of different items on site (food and non-food related products). If you want to be present in EJC 2020 with your business, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What kind of accommodation will there be available for attendees to EJC 2020?
For those of you attending EJC 2020, besides the traditional camping option, we are proud to present for the first time the possibility of stay in a school classroom. Classroom accommodations should be booked in advance, and we strongly recommend doing so, specially for big groups. If you have a group of at least 15 people, you can reserved an entire room for yourselves. The rooms can be same sex or mixed, and that is entirely up to you to choose. Rooms will be offered within the ticket sales system so stay tuned for that!
Unfortunately, there is only one small hotel in Hanko, so expect that to be fully booked fast.
How can I get to Hanko?
Finland might sound like a far away country, but it is actually super easy to get there! You can travel directly to Helsinki-Vantaa or Turku airport by plane from most European cities and then take a 2-hour train ride up to the very center of Hanko. Alternatively, you can travel by ferry:
from Stockholm (Sweden) to Helsinki/Turku
from Travemünde (Germany) to Helsinki
from Paldiski (Estonia) to Hanko itself

I plan to travel to EJC with my own car. How is parking and moving around in Hanko?
Hanko is a small tranquil village by the coast. In order to avoid saturating the beautiful city center with cars, overflow car park areas will be designated outside the city center, but still within a walkable distance from EJC premises. Moving around Hanko is easy on foot, as the whole EJC area is reachable in 20 minutes or less.
Will there be a caravan camping area?
Yes, there will be. You will have access to the electric grid but you will have to carry your own drinking water. Tap water in Finland is of high quality and drinkable. You can get access in any school or EJC premises.
Is tap water in Finland drinkable?
Yes, tap water in Finland is of the greatest quality and, therefore, drinkable. Tap water is free in all restaurants in Finland and will be easily accessible to EJC attendees in any school or JEC premises during the event.
Will there be a safe space to spin fire?
Fire spinning is one of the big deals in every jugglers convention and, of course, also in EJC! Hanko is a seaside city, so we are planning to have a great fire spinning area on the beach, and probably other fire safe spaces to spin indoors. Keep tuned to our website and social media channels for more news on this.
