Our first annual FEST! is on June 13th, 2015 - join us from 12pm-10:30pm for Nordic experiences and activities that will be enjoyed by young families, small children and young adults! In the morning, stretch out with the entire family during gentle yoga and munch on some Glam Doll donuts with lingonberry filling. During the day, little ones attend an interactive book reading while the parents browse the maker's mart and listen to live music. Come with an empty stomach to experience some of Minneapolis' favorite food trucks, sampling local craft beers and aquavit along the way. End your day with a bonfire and s'mores as well as a toast to the coming of the Midtsommer sun.
Can't get enough? Be a true Norwegian and continue the party with your own nachspiel (after party, see below).
"As the sun starts to rise, we drift back to someone's home for nachspiel – the afterparty. The aroma of fresh coffee wafts through the morning stillness; in the kitchen, his father reads the paper. I don't get it. My hypothesis seems sound, but begs another question. I saw this man, a respected local official, enjoying the music only hours ago. When do you all sleep? He stirs his coffee, slowly. "Sleep?" he says, quietly and reservedly, glancing out of the window... "We sleep during winter."
