This 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 festival was called "Finlandia Days". In 1999 it was renamed the "Midnight Sun Festival". We are honored to have the City of Lake Worth as the Presenting Sponsor.
Midnight Sun Festival, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Florida Corporation, run entirely by volunteers. Any proceeds left over after expenses are paid will be used to send a Florida child to summer camp in Bemidji, Minnesota, at the Salolampi Finnish Language Village.
