Syttende Mai Celebration

Vesterheim is hosting a free online Syttende Mai celebration! The event will be live at noon (CT) (May 17th of course) and will feature Norwegian storyteller Anne Elisebeth Skogen as she tells her story entitled, “Schoolgirl and My Very First May 17th Parade in 1962.” Many of you may remember Anne Elisebeth previously presented the story of the Slooper’s voyage across the Atlantic. If you missed it, a recording can be found here. I would encourage you to check it out.

But that is not all! In addition to Anne Elisebeth’s story, Vesterheim’s Syttende Mai event will feature musicians Beth and Jon Rotto on the fiddle and guitar. They will be playing Norwegian and Norwegian-American tunes live from Bethany’s Church in Vesterheim’s Heritage Park.

The event is free but registration is required. You can register by clicking this link.

Glad Syttende Mai til deg!
