Seattle 17th of May Festival

In 2020, Seattle was shocked when for the first time in 130 years, it did not host a Syttende Mai Parade in Ballard, due to the global pandemic. While there were attempts to host some things online, time was short.

With a new year comes a new resolve to celebrate Norwegian Constitution day as we are accustomed. The Seattle Norwegian 17th of May Committee is currently in the process of planning and re-thinking our celebrations for 2021 this 17th of May. We are working on hosting a virtual events including luncheon, musical performances, and more.

Please check back soon as we work to put together a Virtual Program for the 17th of May.
