Are you ready for a parade? Vesterheim welcomes you to a Syttende Mai celebration with a traditional Children’s Parade, a performance by Decorah’s Nordic Dancers, and other activities.
Syttende Mai is the day Norway ratified its constitution in 1814 at Eidsvoll.
Now, Norwegians celebrate their constitution with excited crowds, especially children, marching through the streets waving flags, singing songs, and celebrating their nation’s independence. Syttende Mai is a great opportunity to celebrate freedom wherever it occurs.
Check back for a schedule of events for this year’s celebration on May 17, 2018!
