From 10 AM to 4 PM, you can enjoy a Nordic Market with jewelry, rosemaling, collectables, wooden crafts, candles, soaps, gifts and a silent auction.

Between 11 AM and 3 PM, you can enjoy a taste of Norway with traditional eats like pea soup, hot dogs, meatballs, waffles and porridge.

Then at dusk you will get to have the unique experience of seeing vikings. The Poulsbo Sons of Norway Vikings will bring the Lucia Bride by boat to shore, where a bonfire will be lit, followed by the Viking King’s reading of the Winter Solstice Proclamation. What an experience!
