Support the 17th of May, Ballard’s biggest community event! 

Each year, the people of Seattle gather together to celebrate the 17th of May– Norwegian Constitution Day. This fun and exciting event gives a nod to Ballard’s proud Nordic heritage and is a day to commemorate the fundamental values that have made our community great: Democracy, Freedom, and Equality.

The day includes a gala luncheon at the National Nordic Museum, a musical program at Bergen Place Park, an open house at the Sons of Norway Leif Erickson Lodge, and a grand parade through the streets of Ballard.

All of this is made possible by our volunteers and generous donations from our community of supporters.

  • $1,000 Valkyrie Level Sponsorship: Your logo on our website, social media and listed in the luncheon brochure.
