Experience Finnish Sauna June 9th in New York Mills

CLICK HERE to make reservations for “Sisu” the Finnish traveling sauna, in New York Mills on Friday, June 9, 2017 from 6-9pm at the Sculpture Park in New York Mills.

On Friday, June 9, 2017, from 6-9pm, folks will gather at the Sculpture Park in New York Mills to kick-off the Great American Think-Off weekend festivities. As a part of that celebration, “Sisu” the Finnish traveling sauna will be available for viewing and a Finnish sauna experience. Reservations are required if you’d like to experience the sauna for yourself. 

The sauna will fit up to 6 people at a time; price is $30 for 45 minutes for a group of up to six (paid upon arrival). Only four time slots between 6-9pm are available; each for a group of up to 6 people. The price is $30 for a 45 minute time slot regardless of the number of people in the group. Just one reservation per time slot is allowed, so one person per group should make the reservation.

The Traveling Sauna is a Finnish-American Project that will travel around the United States during 2017 as a part of the Finland Centennial Celebrations. The sauna will travel over 10,000 miles from the West Coast through the Mid-West to the East Coast, visiting 12 states. New York Mills has a rich history of Finnish heritage, so we at the Cultural Center thought that inviting “Sisu” to town for our 25th annual Think-Off celebration was the perfect way to honor that history.
