California’s premier Danish heritage festival, “Solvang Danish Days” (www.solvangdanishdays.org), returns in 2022 to celebrate with an event weekend line-up set for Friday through Sunday, September 16 through 18, 2022. Solvang Danish Days will once again provide attendees with a total Danish immersion experience while helping to preserve Solvang’s authentic Danish heritage.
Solvang Danish Days, which honors the 1911 establishment of Solvang by Danish-Americans, continues to expand upon its varied activities, melding more modern Danish practices with traditional ways, yet still exemplifying everything Danish. The weekend’s numerous offerings, encompassing activities for all ages, range from fan-favorite food events surrounding Aebleskiver, the iconic Danish pastry rounds; to a Danish-style beer and wine garden serving Danish import, Carlsberg beer, alongside local brews, wines and festival eats; to interactive history lessons at the Elverhoj Museum of History & Art; restaurant and bar promotions scattered about the town, and possibly an Old World artisanal crafts marketplace.
Solvang Danish Days boasts plentiful free entertainment during the weekend with thre parades, Danish folk dancers and musicians performing in spots all over town, plus an afternoon and evening of free, live concerts on the Midgaard Pavilion Stage in the middle of downtown Solvang, adjacent to the Viking Beer & Wine Garden. Solvang Danish Days also aims to please the next generation of Danish Days fans with family-friendly pass-times, including a “Kid’s Korner” in Solvang Park featuring LEGO®.
