Located in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN), Finnish American Cultural Activities invites you to join us at our programs and activities. FACA is a non-profit educational organization that offers programs with a rich ethnic flavor: literature, music, travel, food, the immigrant culture, contemporary Finland, and other topics. It is dedicated to preserving and promoting the cultural heritage of Americans of Finnish ancestry. FACA schedules meetings and programs on the third Friday of each month from September to May. FACA does not have a program in December, when, for the last several years, we have joined other organizations in the local Finnish American community to celebrate "Joulu - Magical Finnish Christmas."

The next FACA program will be Friday Sept. 15, 7:00 p.m. You can find information about the speaker here in early September. Location: International Institute of Minnesota, 1694 Como Ave., St. Paul (across from the Fairgrounds).
