Event Description:
Since 1961, the people of Junction City Oregon have been celebrating their rich Scandinavian heritage by transforming the downtown area into a charming old world town. Offering cultural entertainment and activities in the authentic Scandinavian spirit, this four day event pays homage to the cultures of Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Treasured handicrafts are available including rosemalling, hardanger, pottery, woodcrafts, needle work, and original paintings, drawings, and watercolors. Whether you prefer to participate or spectate, the Scandinavian Festival offers a variety of events for the whole family. Colorful costumes are highlighted during the fashion show, and storytellers and actors bring to life the tales of Hans Christian Andersen; and the ever-popular folk dancers are commonly caught with both feet off the ground. Noted as one of the festival's most spectacular features, these folk dancers travel from all over the Pacific Northwest to perform and instruct. Choral and instrumental groups, numerous stage events, and the historical museum tour add color and diversity to the Scandinavian festivities.
