The 44th festival of Nordic cultures, the largest such event in Southern California, features music, dancing, cooking and craft demonstrations, vendors, and activities for people of all ages. Festivalgoers can visit an authentic Viking Village and a Saami sliddastallan, or community gathering, try their hand at Dala horse croquet, and decorate free head wreaths with flowers and ribbon. Aspiring athletes can sign up for the inaugural kubb tournament, an ancient Viking game. Younger Vikings can enjoy the Hans Christian Andersen puppet shows and make free craft souvenirs. Food is always a highlight of ScanFest. Taste delicious lefse, Viking Dogs, Scandinavian pastries, and World Famous bleskivers. Make your way to the main stage to enjoy Nordic dance groups, and a headline performance by ABBAFAB, a tribute to the Swedish pop group ABBA. The festival is produced by the Scandinavian American Cultural and Historical Foundation.
