Old-Fashioned Christmas

Julemarked is becoming Julefest December 2020!

As we try to accommodate COVID-19 concerns, it is necessary for us to adjust our plans!  A one-day event has the potential to bring too many people together at one time, so we’re spreading the event out to cover more than two weeks: December 5 – 20, 2020!

We’re still putting details together, so be sure to check back here and see what Julefest December 2020 is all about!


Plan a day of shopping for unique, one-of-a-kind gifts when the shelter on our main property is transformed into a Julemarked, or Christmas marketplace!  Vendors with hand-made goods will join us for the day, while traditional Norwegian baked goods will be sold from the shelter kitchen window.  A variety of activities will be available for visitors as well: yule-log hunts, winter scavenger hunts, snow shoe hikes, letters to Father Christmas and more.  Watch for details as they continue to develop!

As with every event in 2020, the Coronavirus is a factor in all of our plans.  Adapting our traditional Old Fashioned Christmas to become a primarily outdoor event is part of adapting to COVID-19 constraints.  While we can not have our traditional dinner, or gather in the Visitors’ Center for music and fellowship, we can still share the spirit of the season and the joy of our heritage on this day!  Please watch our Facebook page for Old Fashioned Christmas plans as they continue to develop.
