SAUNA: Something to Celebrate

Sauna is the most known Finnish word in the U.S., within and outside of the Finnish-American community. While many people have experienced sauna at hotels, spas and gyms, in the time of COVID-19, home saunas have become popular additions.

Finlandia Foundation National has declared the last week in February “National Sauna Week” to build awareness and appreciation of this aspect of Finnish and Finnish-American culture.

Our second annual celebration was February 19-25, 2023, and featured a variety of online programs with experts on different aspects of sauna culture. Some FFN chapters and independent businesses also hosted events in their communities. Click below for links to our events, which are being added to the FFN YouTube channel, where you’ll also find our 2022 Sauna Week programs.

We offer sauna information and fun content at this website, our social media and YouTube channel. Explore these pages and check back often, as we update and add to the content all year long.
