Email News Alerts

The heat was on at this year’s Finn Creek Summer Folk Festival at the Finn Creek Museum in rural New York Mills this weekend, with temperatures in the 90s and high humidity levels. 


Still, fans of all things Finn didn’t miss their chance to learn a little Finnish language, hear some Finnish music, eat some authentic Finnish food and watch some living history demonstrations. 

Events were ongoing throughout the day both Saturday and Sunday.
