From FinnFest USA Website:

On Midsummer's Eve 1865, some thirty Finns and Smi landed on the shores of the Portage Canal in Hancock, and began work in the copper mines the next day. Though much has changed since then, we have maintained many of the traditions these people brought with them, forming our own unique Finnish American culture that reflects our roots and our continued ties to Finns worldwide. From Suomi College (now Finlandia University), to the tumultuous 1913 Copper Strike, to the Heikinpiv Midwinter Festival, Hancock remains a pivotal center of Finnish American culture.So join us at Midsummer our legendary winter snows will have melted away, revealing stunning surroundings to immerse yourself in.We are ready to provide you with an unforgettable FinnFest experience, done in true Copper Country style copper over gold, sauna over spa and pasty over pt. Well have our coffee brewing, our saunas warming, and our communities ready to welcome both new and longtime friends.See for yourself why FinnFest should be your Midsummer destination in 2013!
