Tervetuloa! Welcome to FACA!

About FACA:

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.

Visit us also on Facebook!

FACA schedules meetings and programs on the third Friday of each month from September to May, except for December.

For our February program, we will celebrate Laskiainen with traditional pea soup, music and dancing! Time and place are Friday, February 16, 7:00 PM at the International Institute of Minnesota, 1694 Como Ave., St. Paul (across from the Minnesota State Fair grounds).

Enjoy a hot bowl of pea soup along with a hearty potluck feast, lively music for listening and dancing with Ralph Tuttila and Finn Hall, and an engaging demonstration of Finnish-American folk-dancing by Kisarit!

The FACA Board members will supply a variety of hernekeitto (pea soup), and there will be plenty of good kahvia. FACA members, please bring a dish to share if you can, based on your last name:

A-D bread; E-J dessert; K-O salad; P-Z appetizer or side dish.

There will also be announcement of the 2017 Sauna Bucket Award, honoring a FACA member who has contributed to FACA and the Twin Cities Finnish community in an exceptional way.

FACA Event Cancellation Policy

If St. Paul public schools are cancelled due to bad weather, then a FACA event scheduled for that day will also be cancelled. FACA members may contact any Board member if they have a question about whether an event is cancelled.
