A Bit of History
The Finnish Festival was first celebrated in Lake Worth’s Bryant Park in 1983. It was founded by Lake Worth Mayor David Hinsa, who is Finnish-American, to celebrate Lake Worth’s rich, century old, Finnish heritage. The greater Lake Worth area has more people of Finnish descent than almost anywhere else in the United States. Lake Worth even has a sister city in Finland – Lappeenranta!
From 1983 to 1998, the Finnish Festival was called “Finlandia Days”. In 1999 it was renamed the “Midnight Sun Festival”. The City of Lake Worth is the Presenting Sponsor.
