Nordic Fest at the Lodge

A Nordic Folk Fest was held at our lodge on October 7, 2023. Exhibits included the Frolelich Fjord Horses, Puget Sound Norwegian Elkhounds, The Bothell Vikings with a Viking encampment, and Suttles Forge demonstrating the forging of steel into knives and swords. Vendors included Marilyn Hansen with her beautiful Norwegian Rosemaling, Alan Andrist with Nordic Traders, Book Author Gloria Knoll, And Wendy Jensen with her Scandinavian Hearts. Entertainment was had throughout the day by our member Lori Hansen and the Pickled Herring Band, the Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag group of young musicians, and The Cukes, a ukulele group. There were games to play for both young and old. In the Nordic Cafe, the Meatball Sundae was a big hit, along with Pulse med loupe, a hot dog wrapped in lefse, and a Swedish Hot Dog, a hot dog on a bun with mashed potatoes. For sides there was pickled herring and coleslaw. For those with a sweet tooth, there was Swedish Waffles with strawberry jam and whipped cream, Swedish Chocolate Balls, and Swedish cake. Covering several long tables were homemade Nordic baked goods for sale, from cookies, cakes, breads, sweet rolls, krumkake, lefse, kransekake and lots more!
