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!
