Get a head start on your holiday shopping while immersing yourself in Nordic Christmas traditions. The festival will present food, music and craft holiday traditions of the Nordic countries. Authentic specialty treats will be available throughout the museum, including open-face Scandinavian sandwiches at the Nordic Café; krumkake and lefse in the Kaffestuga; and, in the Bodega, glögg and a selection of Nordic beers. Scandinavian fiddlers, singers, and folk dancers will bring Nordic culture to life, performing on stages throughout the Museum. Young and old alike can enjoy free holiday-inspired crafts, activities, and pictures with Santa.
Find the perfect present for each person on your holiday shopping list by perusing the Nordic-inspired wares of more than 40 merchants. New this year to the event will be a silent auction each day from 3 to 5 p.m. featuring exclusive experiences and specialty Nordic items for that person on your list who is especially difficult to shop for. In addition, the annual Yulefest Raffle features the grand prize of two roundtrip tickets to Scandinavia aboard Icelandair, in addition to many other prizes. Raffle tickets may be purchased at the Museum before Yulefest as well.
