Finnish Your Dinner

Welcome to the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C. for a joint potluck dinner on August 3, from 6 pm to 8:30 pm!

Finnish Your Dinner

“Finnish Your Dinner”-concept was introduced globally a year ago for Finland’s centennial celebration. In 2017, these dinners were arranged all around the world at the end of August, 100 days before Finland turned 100 years old. Any friend of Finland was able to take part in this event by organizing their own dinner party as small or as big as they wished. The 2017 event in Washington D.C. was a success, so we decided to host another dinner this August!

The concept of “Finnish Your Dinner” is simple. The Embassy will set up a long dinner table, where we invite everyone to eat and share their food and drinks with them. You can sign up solo, or make a group booking. The Embassy will serve a delicious traditional Finnish dessert. The potluck style dinner is held in the Finlandia Hall of the Embassy, in which it almost feels like being in nature because of the stunning glass window wall background opening up to the forest.

Finnish Your Dinner, Finnish Your Dinner

The idea behind “Finnish Your Dinner” is to bring people together from all walks of life, make new friends, enjoy each other’s company and celebrate summer. According to recent studies, eating together increases the quality of life and well-being of the mind!

The event is free but the registration for the event is compulsory and is done via this linkYou can sign up groups with a maximum of four people. Be sure to sign up early, as the space is limited and slots will fill up quickly!

Address: 3301 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20008
