For kids, the festival includes a Children’s Theater, performances by community children’s groups, and a puppet show of the Hans Christian Andersen stories. Each child can pick up a Children’s Passport, visit each Scandinavian country’s craft booth where the passport will be stamped, and receive a reward for visiting each country. A special treat, for young and old, is creating a decorated head wreath.
Festivalgoers can visit an authentic Viking Village, as well as a Saami sliddastallan, or community gathering. They can try their hand at Dala horse croquet and play an ancient Viking game called kubb. Scandinavian food is always a highlight of the Festival.
