43rd Annual Finn Fest

August 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2019

It’s FESTIVAL time!! Mark your calendars and plan to support this major fundraising event.  This is a great time to get some of your work hours in, catch up with other members and friends, and cheer on our own Finn Camp Voima team in the softball tournament!!  

Friday kicks off the festival weekend with the kitchen and beer truck opening at 5:00 p.m., followed by the Home Run Derby beginning about 6:30 p.m. Come see how many of the big hitters can still knock ’em into the woods! We will continue in to the evening with music and dancing in the Clubroom!

Saturday the kitchen will open for breakfast at 8:00 a.m., with food available all day in the Ravintola and food tent. The softball tournament also begins at 8:00 a.m. with games on the Finn Camp’s George Aho Memorial Field and the Gilbert Willis Park fields. Flag raising ceremonies will be at 11:00 a.m. with music and entertainment continuing from the Dance Hall porch through the afternoon.  There will be 50/50 raffles, prize raffles sponsored by the Scholarship Committee, kids activities and other games for all ages sponsored by the Recreation Committee, ‘Round Robin’ horseshoes and Fowling tournaments, and the sale of Finn Camp merchandise throughout the day.  Save some room on your dance card and join us for some fun in the Dance Hall to close out the evening!!    

Sunday FUNday, and we will do it all over again! The kitchen will open for breakfast at 8:00 a.m. with food available all day. Softball will continue on all three fields with the championship game on our “A” Field in the late afternoon/early evening, followed immediately by trophy presentation. Music, raffles, horseshoes, and other activities will continue as well.  

Many members are needed to work in all areas throughout the weekend, especially in the security and kitchen areas. As a member of a cooperative association, please participate by giving a few hours of your time to pitch in and help make our festival successful! Every hour counts, and no task is too small—WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! PLEASE – Come out to support your Finn Camp and our 42nd Annual Finn Fest!!!  Work hours sign-up sheets are posted at Sun Lake Beach, or contact Robyn directly for other available options for hours.    REMINDER – We are looking for a new team to take over kitchen manager detail if Finn Fest is going to continue.  Please contact Robyn or Greg!!!
