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.

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.

After the Celebration comes the Remembrance: Finland and Finnish America's "Red" and "White" Wars

K. Marianne Wargelin

For May's program, Marianne Wargelin will talk about how the civil war that followed the independence of Finland involved Finns living in the USA and activities occurring in Finnish America.

K. Marianne Wargelin is Honorary Consul for Finland in the Twin Cities since 1999, President of FinnFest USA since 2004 and extensive researcher into small cultures within Western Culture, particularly Finnish America and Finland. Her Ph.D. dissertation is now in its final stages at the University of Tampere.

This evening will include the annual meeting. Please join us! Coffee and conversation will follow.

After the Celebration comes the Remembrance:
