California’s premier Danish heritage festival, “Solvang Danish Days” returns in 2018 to celebrate its 82nd anniversary with an event weekend line-up set for Friday through Sunday, September 14 through 16. Danish Days once again provide attendees with a total Danish immersion experience, while helping to preserve Solvang’s authentic Danish heritage.

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 and wines; to interactive history lessons at the Elverhoj Museum; a Viking Encampment in Solvang Park; to an afternoon and evening of free, live rock concerts; to chainsaw wood-carving demonstrations and an Old World artisanal crafts marketplace.

Solvang Danish Days also aims to please its next generation of Danish Days fans with multiple pass-times, including story-telling sessions with Randel McGee as Hans Christian Andersen, and a “Kid’s Korner” in Solvang Park featuring LEGO®.

The festival offers a “Dane For A Day” ticket bundle package for guests looking to “live like Vikings” throughout the event weekend. For more information, visit
