Heikinpaiva taking one-year hiatus

Possibility of Finnish American Folk School classes in 2021 remains

HANCOCK — The City of Hancock’s Finnish Theme Committee pondered every possibility, but after months of thoughtful planning and consideration, the group decided that it couldn’t conduct the annual Heikinpäivä celebration in a manner that would provide a fulfilling cultural experience and maintain public heath safety.

While the possibility of Finnish American Folk School classes during January 2021 remains, the Heikinpäivä festival will take a one-year hiatus.

The Committee remains optimistic that the programming festival-goers have come to expect and enjoy each winter will be able to take place in full during January 2022.
