2013 Tori Market

No FinnFest would be complete without the popular Tori market. From local history books to Finnish high fashion, Iittala Toikka birds to rag rugs, the tori offers something for everyone! The 2013 Tori will be centered on the campus of Michigan Technological University in Houghton at the Student Development Complex. The spacious athletic complex will accommodate numerous vendors offering souvenirs and hard-to-find gifts for the Finn at heart! The Tori is also the location for great food, music and dancing, and an information station.
