Annual Laft Hus Festival

Our 2019 Festival will be June 15!

For one day in the summer we transform Heritage Square into a fully Scandinavian experience. We invite Viking re-enactors to set up camp in the park, our friends from the Fanatullen Scandinavian Dancers demonstrate folk dances, and we provide lots of fun food to try like vaffler, æbleskiver, lefse, krumkaker, and more! The square is also bustling with children's activities, games, and story telling. It is a great event for the whole family to enjoy. So why don't you come down to the Laft Hus and discover your inner viking?
