Harvest Booya
Harvest Booya

Finland MN Heritage Site | Finland MN

Harvest Booya has been a 27 year tradition in Finland of celebrating community and serving a traditional Booya Stew carefully simmered overnight.
We are excited to feature local growers and producers in our Harvest Booya and celebrate the harvest season with live music (The Barstones, Gene LaFond and Amy Grillo, and Steven Solkela and His Overpopulated One Man Band), great food (Booya Stew, Fried Bread, Fresh Local Produce), agricultural demonstrations (apple cider and wild rice), and activities for kids!
