~73rd Annual Event Features Authentic Foods, Music, Folk Dancing, Living History Exhibits Plus 3 Parades

*New for 2009: Victor Borge Exhibit--Celebrating the famed Danish comedian & pianist

 


Solvang, California, USA
The “Danish Capital of America” celebrates its 73rd annual Danish Days from Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 20, 2009. The event is sponsored by the Danish Days Foundation honoring the establishment of Solvang by Danish-Americans in 1911; and to continue preserving the village’s authentic Danish heritage. The theme for this year's celebration is "Vikings in Vineland.”


Danish and US flags line the streets, people don colorful costumes, and there is folk dancing and entertainment throughout town—such as the Ravens of Odin, a professional Viking re-enactment group that create an authentic encampment; large-scale wood-carving demonstrations; and Randel McGee’s Hans Christian Andersen story-telling sessions. Authentic restaurants and bakeries feature tasty cuisine, including aebleskiver (Danish pastry ball) and medisterpølse (Danish sausage). Over a dozen wine tasting rooms offer award-winning vintages from the surrounding Santa Ynez Valley. Area residents as well as thousands of visitors enjoy the festivities annually.


Here is the 2009 Schedule of Events—all are open to public, most are free.
