Yulefest 2012 is Coming

Yule Nissen

The Nordic Heritage Museum in the Ballard District of Seattle will present its annual Yulefest in November.  This is a fun cultural event that is not to be missed, and a perfect opportunity to snap up some unique Christmas gifts and goodies!

Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

"Begin the holiday season at this year’s Yulefest on Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18. This popular Nordic Christmas celebration offers hundreds of hand-crafted gifts, Scandinavian musical performances, and Nordic treats to inspire holiday cheer.

Enjoy traditional Scandinavian entertainment featuring fiddlers, singers, and folk dancers. Shop for hand-crafted gifts from our many Nordic-inspired vendors, and finish your gift shopping early this year!

Take a break to enjoy Nordic specialty treats available at several locations in 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.

You can even stock up for your holiday get-togethers at Goodies to Go where Nordic sweets are available for take-home purchase.

Yulefest is perfect for the entire family, with crafts for kids and Santa Claus will even appear for photos!"
