Julefest Gala
Posted on: October 01, 2018
Event date: November 29, 2018, 6 p.m.

Start off your holiday season with the 5th Annual Julefest, the Twin Cities' Scandinavian Christmas party!

This year, Julefest partners are excited to host this event at the newly renovated Watson Block, in Minneapolis' Historic Warehouse District. This unique space combines the historic aesthetic of brick and timber construction along with elegant contemporary finishes.

Started in 2014 by the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce as "Norsk Julefest," this authentic Norwegian-style holiday cocktail party has expanded to include Swedish and Finnish traditions as well, uniting the numerous Scandinavian organizations throughout the state for an evening of friends, food, and festivities. 

More information on emcee, catering, cocktails, and entertainment coming soon. 

TICKETS are now for sale! Get yours today - space is limited.


There are plenty of sponsorship and partner opportunities available. Julefest also seeks gift-bag donations and other gifts-in-kind. Please email us at
