Kick off the holidays with Yulefest this weekend

Posted by Meghan Walker on November 16th, 2012

This weekend is the annual Yulefest at the Nordic Heritage Museum. Yulefest, on Nov. 17-18, is a Nordic Christmas celebration and will include hand-crafted gifts, Scandinavian music, and Nordic treats.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, and will feature traditional Scandinavian entertainment such as fiddlers, singers and folk-dancers. Scandinavian food will include open-face sandwiches at the Nordic Café; krumkake and lefse in the Kaffestuga; and, in the Bodega, glögg and a selection of Nordic beers, according to the Nordic Heritage Museum’s webpage about the event. It’s a family-friendly event, and Santa will make an appearance for photos.

The Nordic Heritage Museum suggests a donation of $3 for adults, $1 for kids 6-11, kids under 6 are admitted free. Limited parking is $2.
