Seattle 17th of May Festival

After 130 years of celebrating Norway’s Constitution Day in Seattle, we sadly with broken hearts, have had to face the reality of not being able to go forward with preparations for Seattle’s Syttende Mai celebration this year. Based on the guidance of public health authorities, our permits for public gatherings have been suspended.

Our hearts go out to all who are affected by the current world health crisis. While adhering to “sheltering in place” we encourage you to rely on your inner Nordic strength and remain “Nordic Strong” and resourceful with hopes of happier and healthier times in the near future.
