Description

Enjoy the great Viking party and experience the best of Scandinavia at Astoria Scanfest. Since this small town in Oregon has many locals of Scandinavian origin they decided to celebrate their ancestors through an interesting and fun festival. In three days this festival strives to evoke old traditions and present Scandinavian folklore to visitors. This event combines interesting folk music and dances, alongside traditional food and events. In the past the festival hosted musicians like Karelian Folk Music Ensemble, Ultima Thule and Pekka & Perttu. In addition, there are many other entertaining events like the beauty contest, bonfire and troll race. Whether your great-great-grandpa was a Viking or not, you should still see, taste and enjoy Scandinavia at this years’ Astoria Scanfest.
