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 park.

TBD Coffee $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.
