Danish Days is Only a Month Away!

13- Danish Days 2008-AebleskiverMakerGot an appetite for aebleskiver, those delish Danish pancake balls? Want to hear Danish music and do street dancing? Want to meet a Viking? Make sure you mark your calendar for Friday, 9/16/16 through Sunday, 9/18/16 for the FREE 80th annual Danish Days celebration. Sponsored by the charitable Solvang Danish Days Foundation, this amazing activity-filled weekend honors the founding of Solvang by Danish-Americans in 1911. (Hard to believe that was 105 years ago!)

Solvang, CaliforniaYou can enjoy three parades ((Friday night Torchlight; Saturday afternoon Main Parade featuring 2016 Grand Marshals Mike and Martha Nedegaard and Sunday’s Children’s Parade); two aebleskiver breakfasts followed by an aebleskiver eating contest (how many can you eat in 5 minutes?) In Solvang Park check out the Kids’ Korner featuring a huge LEGOS ® make-your-own craft tent. There are free concerts and live entertainment all around town. You can experience “living history” at the Elverhoj Museum. Come be a Dane for the weekend! Don’t miss any of these festivities!
