Northwest Folklife

Thanks to everyone who made Ballard's celebration of Syttende Mai great! The Nordic Spirit made its official debut and we are just beginning to pull together photographs of the parade. I'll make sure to post a bunch in the coming weeks.

Northwest Folklife is this weekend, beginning on Friday and closing on Monday. The Nordic Heritage Museum is participating in a bunch of different ways: we will be active in the Nordic Village with Erik Holt showing off his woodcarving on Sunday, and lots of children's craft activities throughout the weekend. The Nordic Spirit will be nearby the Nordic Village, so be sure to stop by and say 'hi' to our staff and volunteers. Olaf Kvamme will be giving a presentation about Scandinavian participation in the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition on Friday at 6:00 pm on the Narrative Stage, and I will be giving a presentation on the Nordic Spirit the following Monday at 1:00 on the Narrative Stage.
