When “The Bear Rolls Over” each January, everyone in Hancock becomes Finnish….in contrast to the normal, non-festival days when only 95% are.

Join in with the fun and participate the parade with Keweenaw Nordic! Mark your calendar for Saturday, January 25th. Line up at the Scott Hotel at 10:30, and at 11 we’ll march to the Finnish American Heritage Center for games, lunch, and the craft fair.

Here’s a link to the schedule of events for the whole fun-filled Festival!https://www.finlandia.edu/heikinpaiva/2020-schedule/

  • Glide 'n Gorge
    February 27, 2022 12:00 pm

    The date for this event is February 27, 2021. 

    The 13th annual Glide N Gorge stays on Saturday, February, 27, 2021. As in the past, we’ll be ready to serve up great fun and a snack from noon until 3pm at the Maasto Hiihto ski trails in Hancock. 

     

    Our Team at KNSC had to come up with some creative solutions to pull this event off.  It will not be like past GnG's but we hope you will enjoy our unique format this year!

    Glide on!  We look forward to seeing you!
