November 23 - November 24$8
Celebrate the 42nd annual Julefest at the National Nordic Museum. This annual event turns the Museum into a winter wonderland the weekend before Thanksgiving. Shop the craft and specialties market with more than 40 vendors to help you find the perfect present for everyone on your list.
Grab some authentic Nordic treats from Goodies2Go, participate in the kids’ crafts and activities inside Santa’s workshop…and take photos with Santa.
Foodies will want to take time for lunch with both traditional and new Nordic cuisine including lefse, open-face sandwiches, grilled Museum dogs, meatballs, seafood, roasted nuts, and gourmet coffee or espresso. Grab freshly made aebleskiver in the East Garden or enjoy the expanded Valhalla Beer Garden serving up beer, glogg, wine, spirits, and aquavit.
Additional outdoor stages and expanded eating areas means you can enjoy a meal or quick bite while watching music and dancing by incredible local groups, and so much more! See the Museum’s website for a detailed schedule of the weekend’s activities.
