Nordic festival offers fun from start to Finnish

September 2, 2012 by  

The 11th annual Nordic Heritage Festival will take place at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. A donation of $5 is suggested for admission.

Nordic heritage covers the countries of Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Finland. The festival will open with a parade of flags and go on to feature Nordic arts and crafts, dance troupes, musical concerts, a Lego display, face painting, a Nordic garage sale, a photo booth, prize drawings, and vendor booths. There will also be a Viking living history exhibit, a Nordic potluck dinner, and cooking demonstrations on how to make lefse and krumkake.

Vendors will probably be selling anything and everything related to Nordic culture, while the garage sale will feature gently-used Nordic-related items. Organizations such as the Sons of Norway and the Lindsborg, KS Convention & Visitors Bureau will also be providing information to those in attendance. They will no doubt be working alongside Lawrence printing companies and brochure printers to provide reading literature to those who are interested. A brochure could provide all the information necessary about an organization for a very reasonable price, and printing companies can advise on the best design, the right paper to use and the most appropriate size of a brochure relevant to the occasion.

All set to go ahead on October 6 from 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm, it sounds like anyone who has any Nordic blood or those who are interested in the culture will find something they like at the Nordic Heritage Festival.
