Get ready for one of our most popular events: Rekefest - our annual Norwegian Shrimp Fest! We import our shrimp direct from Norway and spend an evening on the lawn enjoying the delicious springtime meal rekesmørbrød, or open-face shrimp sandwiches. Of course, there will be hot dogs for the kids (or anyone who isn't feeling seafood but wants to join in on the fun) and we can't forget to finish off the meal with a delicious Norwegian dessert of strawberries and ice cream.

RESERVATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED: space (and food) is limited at this popular event! Reservations are required and were due by Thursday, April 12.

Sankt Hans Aften

Saturday mid-June | Date and time to be announced soon
At the home of Mike and Susan McIver

38212 N. 23rd Drive, Desert Hills, AZ
Admission: FREE

Join us for our annual Midsummer Night celebration! In honor of the Scandinavian midsummer holiday Sankt Hans Aften (St. John’s Eve), we will spend the evening relaxing out by the bonfire, enjoying hot dogs, burgers, children’s games, and good fun for all. Our bonfire may not be quite as large or on a beach, but we sure will have great company!

This potluck event is BYOB – so bring a beverage, a dish to share, a chair to sit in, and your favorite Sankt Hans stories and songs (if you play an instrument, bring that along, too, for some fireside music!). The club will provide hamburgers, hotdogs, and all the fixings. If you prefer something else, bring your meat of choice. We will have BBQ grills available for everyone to use. See you there!
