Time: All Day
Location: Finland MN Heritage Site
With the incredible musical talent up and down the shore, you can enjoy a variety of local bands and solo musicians as you tap your toes to continuous music all day long from our music stage. In Finnish, Tori means “open marketplace” so it has grown to include local artists, merchants, and demonstrations such as blacksmithing, fiber arts, basket making, spoon carving, candle making, broom making, and many others. You can purchase items from many vendors including knives apparel, books, cards, jewelry, wooden boxes, photography, hand woven rugs, flowers and plants. The huge variety changes every year so come out and see what’s new.
As a fundraiser for the Historical Society our volunteers sell food including our famous herring burgers, beef on a bun, tacos in a bag, potato salad, hot dogs, brats, Bob’s awesome corn on the cob, homemade desserts, pop, rootbeer floats, popcorn, and more. There is a silent auction with articles and experiences to bid on including overnight stays in local venues as well as dining and hand made goods. Or take a chance on our cash raffle consisting of $1500 in prizes.
The event is FREE and there is plenty of parking on site. Come for the day and enjoy the local atmosphere and people of Finland, MN both today and in the past. Free will donations are accepted and appreciated. Your donations go to help preserve this fine historical site for generations to come.
