45th Annual Julefest coming up this weekend at the National Nordic Museum

This weekend, the National Nordic Museum will be hosting its 45th Annual Julefest celebration.

Julefest: A Nordic Christmas Celebration will be held Nov. 19 and 20 at the National Nordic Museum. The event is a “modern spin on a traditional market” with over 30 local artists, live entertainment, and traditional Nordic holiday fare.

Along with the Christmas market from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, there will also be several events for kids. Here are some of the Julefest for Kids activities that the museum is planning:

  • Activity Books
  • Tomte Hat Drop-in Craft
  • Santa visits
  • Viking Ship
  • Nordic Music for Kids

There will also be a “Julefest After Dark” event held after the market is over from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. at Skål Beer Hall (5429 Ballard Ave NW).

Julefest is free for museum members and is $10 for non-members—register online if you want to secure tickets.
