It’s time again to sample open-faced sandwiches and other delicacies at the annual Scandinavian Festival and Christmas sale this weekend at the Norwegian church in the Garden District in New Orleans.
For details, see information from the church below:
Scandinavian Festival is a continuation of the traditional Christmas sale and is perhaps the year’s biggest event at the Norwegian church in New Orleans.
Several of the city’s well-known musicians will be playing during the festival – many of them Scandinavians: Lars Edegran, Christian Winther, Katja Toivola, Orange Kellin, Norbert Susemihl and Leroy Jones just to mention a few.
At the annual Christmas sale with Scandinavian crafts and Christmas decorations, you will be able to find both Christmas gifts and decorations for the upcoming season.
This weekend is also a food fest with Scandinavian treats like open-faced sandwiches, Christmas food and cakes. Come, eat and taste, and buy the food you need for your own Christmas celebration!
