Already waiting for the NamiAppro 2020?

NamiAppro 2020 is organized on Tuesday 8.9.2020. Write down the date so you won’t miss out on the best event of the autumn!


But what is NamiAppro actually?

NamiAppro is one of the biggest alcohol-free student events in Finland, but a sugar rush is guaranteed! The student association Bioteekkarikilta Bioner ry organizes NamiAppro every autumn and the idea is to introduce Tampere and its cafes to students. In the event, cafes and deli shops are visited and stamps are collected. In the goal you can get a degree according to the amount of visited cafes. Additionally, the day will be crowned with a sugary feeling and your inner sweet tooth will be satisfied. The idea is also to have fun and enjoy life with all senses. You don´t want to miss an event this sweet!





You can choose one of the three maps of NamiAppro when you purchase your ticket. You can only get a stamp from a café that is marked on your spesific map, so choose wisely. Lately the routes have been, named by the starting point, Hervanta, Ratina and Tammela maps. The finish line will be same for all maps and there is also the last possible place to earn a stamp.
