About this event

Julefest is BACK this holiday season, and Norway House is hosting. The tradition of getting together for Julefest continues. This year includes a delicious, gingerbread twist....

For the six years between 2014-2019, the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce, Norwegian Consulate General, and Norway House have joined together to celebrate a modern and authentic Scandinavian Christmas filled with one-of-a-kind traditions, songs, and warmth. This season, we are pleased to announce the return of Julefest to your holiday calendar.
