Yulefest at the Nordic Heritage Museum

Here at, we have happy memories of spending time at the Nordic Heritage Museum's Yulefest every year as a child, selling Hardanger embroidery with mom and enjoying tasty rullepølse sandwiches.  I don't know that anyone has sold Hardanger embroidery there since mom's time, but you can still find beautiful rosemaled pieces, Scandinavian knit sweaters, and other Scandinavian crafts, along with rullepølse sandwiches, pea soup, and the very popular æbelskiver.  This year's Yulefest is approaching!  Mark your calendars for November 19-20, dig out your Norwegian sweater, and head to Ballard that weekend.  Three tips:
  • Bring your children or grandchildren for an opportunity to sit on santa's lap...the line (if any) is short!
  • Enjoy your open-faced sandwiches while listening to a Scandinavian polka
  • The æbelskiver can be found on the ground floor - at the end of the hallway, then turn right. If the æbelskiver line is short, count your blessings and get your æbelskiver while you can - don't wait!
