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
64th year of Vasa Park 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.

Skjold Lodge Food Booth
"Uff-da bergers" (Sloppy Joe) $4.00
Potato chips $ .50
Assorted baked goods $ .50 - $6.00
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.
