Tervetuloa! Welcome to FACA!

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 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 for the last several years we have joined with other local Finnish groups to hold a pre-Christmas event, Joulu--Magical Finnish Christmas.

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 cultural heritage of Americans of Finnish ancestry.
