November 20 – 21, 2010
The Nordic Heritage Museum invites everyone to begin the holiday season at this year’s YULEFEST on Saturday and Sunday, November 20 and 21, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. This popular Nordic Christmas celebration offers hundreds of hand-crafted gifts, a jubilee of Scandinavian musical performances, and traditional Nordic cuisine that will inspire holiday cheer. Santa will also be visiting the Museum for YULEFEST.
Traditional Scandinavian entertainment will feature fiddlers, singers, folk dancers and more. Shop hand-crafted gifts from our many Nordic-inspired vendors, and enjoy Scandinavian food and drink available at several locations in the Museum. The Nordic Café offers open-faced Scandinavian sandwiches, Æbleskiver, krumkake, and lefse, among many other exciting traditional foods. And don’t miss Goodies to Go where you can purchase Scandinavian treats by the dozen! In the Bodega, enjoy special Scandinavian beverages such as glögg—hot spiced wine, a traditional beverage of the holiday season—and a selection of Nordic beers. The Kaffestuga offers coffee, cookies, and pastries for sale. FREE children’s crafts and activities as well as Santa photos will also be found at YULEFEST. Appropriate for all ages. No reservations needed.
