2018 Festival

Welcome to the 2018 Finnish-American Folk Festival of Naselle

The festival is scheduled for Friday July 27th and Saturday July 28th with the worship & closing ceremonies on Sunday July 29th.

The 2018 festival theme “Finnish 101” was chosen for three reasons.

  • First, this year is the 101st anniversary of Finland’s Independence.
  • Second, Dan Karvonen who taught Finnish 101 at FinnFest USA ’17 in Minneapolis will do the same for us on Friday and Saturday.
  • Third, Naselle is just off of US 101.

Kiitos oikein paljon, Lyle Haataja, for this idea!
