The Finnish American Cultural Activities (FACA) group of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN) invites you to join our active
schedule of programs and activities.
FACA is a nonprofit educational organization that offers programs with a rich ethnic flavor:
literature, music, travel, food, the immigrant culture and contemporary Finland. It is dedicated to preserving and promoting the cross-cultural
heritage of Americans of Finnish ancestry.
FACA programs are free and open to the public. They take place on the third Friday of each
month from September to May. An exception is December, when we invite you to celebrate a pre-Christmas pikkujoulu ("little Christmas")
with other local Finnish groups.
Special note: We're glad to say that there will be a Finnish Café at the Festival of Nations in spring 2014. Watch for more details
in the January Uutiset.
