Membership & Activities

We at Finland Center are proud to support Finnish culture in New York, and also the values we grew up with – women’s empowerment, peace, equality, human rights, education, and sustainable development. We also benefit from getting together to network and help each other navigate life in this fast-paced city.

Please help us do more interesting events and support our ongoing cultural work in the New York area by becoming a member of our organization! We are all volunteers and we welcome Finns and friends of Finland regardless of race, ethnicity, language, religion, sexual orientation and whether or not your like rye bread, sauna or salmiakki.

We organize concerts (both classical, jazz, and pop); book readings and panel discussions, sauna outings (to the Russian sauna), picnics with Mölkky, karaoke evenings, the annual 5K charity run in Prospect Park, or just getting together in a bar. If you have an idea for a fun or interesting activity, come do it with us! E-mail us at:

By paying the annual membership fee you will have access to the following benefits:

  • Monthly email newsletters
