Enjoy a late summer day
Enjoy a late summer
day with traditional food, crafts, gifts and entertainment
representing the five Nordic Cultures as we celebrate the
creation of Vasa Park in 1953 in South Elgin,
Illinois. Honor the founders for the vision, labors
and resources that built and preserved this beautiful Fox
River Valley venue. Scandinavian Day at Vasa Park is
enjoyed by the thousands who return each year to this late
summer tradition on the Sunday after Labor Day. A
great day of food, fellowship and fun bringing together
friends and family with pride for over 30 years.
Select your favorites, and feast on a variety of
Scandinavian and American food. Visit the many craft
and gift vendors for that special memory of the five Nordic
countries. Bring the family for a full day of fun and
enjoy the tradition of music, dance and a relaxed day in the

Skjold Lodge Food Booth
"Uffda-Joe" (Sloppy Joe) $TBD
Potato chips $TBD
TBD Coffee $TBD
Assorted baked goods $TBD
Skjold Lodge has a booth serving polse in lefse and
"uff da burgers" (sloppy joes), along with beverages and
home baked goods.
BAKE SOMETHING FOR US: Members are encouraged to
bring baked goods for sale at our booth. What seems
to work best is items wrapped for individual sale.
These do not have to be Norwegian items—chocolate chip
cookies sell well. A good example of something to
bring is large cookies wrapped in plastic wrap.
Mark the item with a small label as to what it is: “Chocolate Chip Cookie”, “Brownie”, “Sugar Cookie”, etc. PRICE ALL ITEMS IN $.50 increments as makes it easier to make change.
