17th of May Event: CANCELLED
We are sad to announce that this year's 17th of May parade and potluck event has been cancelled due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with the State of Arizona Executive Order "Stay Home. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected."
While we won't be able to gather in person this year, we encourage our members and community to stay connected digitally with each other and with Norway for one of its most important holidays. The Norwegian government has created a special digital celebration which will be streaming live on Sunday, May 17, 2020. You can follow along here:

City of Oslo's Facebook event
Our events are a great way to meet the local Nordic community. We are a fun group with lots of different interests in Norway and Scandinavia, and our club is a place to all come together and connect. We host our events in locations all around the Phoenix metro area highlighting: Norwegian holidays, delicious foods, current events, Viking history, music and dance, and more.
No need to have Norwegian heritage or to be an official member (although members do get discounted event pricing!). As long as you have an interest in Norway or Scandinavia and want to connect with others, we invite you to come by our next event and see what we are all about. Vi sees snart!
We are all about community and collaboration -- we partner with other Norwegian and Scandinavian organizations across Arizona for events like the 17th of May parade and our Jul Bazaar market.
When there are other local events that our Nordic friends are hosting, we'll share them here.
No events to share at this time.
All Events Cancelled Until Further Notice
The health and safety of our members and community is our main priority, especially in these unprecedented times of Coronavirus (COVID-19). For this reason, our Board has cancelled all events until further notice.
Now more than ever, it is important we stay in touch with our loved ones and community. While we practice physical distancing, let's also remember to promote social connectedness. Stay safe, stay healthy, and take good care of each other!
