Welcome to

theFinnish Center Association

Founded in 1966, the Finnish Center dedicated their Cultural Center in September 1974, in Farmington Hills, Michigan with the objective of promoting and preserving the Finnish culture as well as its social and educational activities. During 1982, the ever increasing membership necessitated the expansion of the Center and extensive renovations to the foyer and main hall.



Our Banquet Facilities

The main hall of the Finnish Center Association comfortably accommodates up to 250 people for myriad functions, including: banquets, weddings, showers, luncheons, reunions, anniversaries, memorial services, seminars, workshops and meetings as well as many others. A large wooden dance floor turns many social events into fun filled nights guests will long remember. Our award winning caterers create individual menus to ensure that just the right food is prepared to enhance each event. Complete bar service is available for all functions. Should you require theater style seating for your event, the main hall can be set up to accommodate 310 persons. For smaller, informal gatherings, our lounge has a 75 person capacity with the same excellent food and beverage services also available. Both facilities are available for rent, please inquire with the Center's Event Manager.
