Come celebrate with the Nordic community in Minnesota at the 35th annual Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast and help us set the record for most Nordic sweaters worn in one room!  

Join us on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, located at 7800 Normandale Blvd., in Bloomington, MN. Seating begins at 6:30 a.m., and the program commences at 7:00 a.m. Nordic sweaters and national costumes are highly encouraged.  

As always, our mission is to bring together people of Nordic heritage in celebration of freedom, faith, family and friends. You won’t want to miss this special holiday tradition of thankfulness, community and giving.
