Nordic Fest is an annual celebration of Scandinavian heritage, culture, and food. We hold a parade to celebrate and highlight the businesses, organizations, & people that add vibrancy to our community.

Though the parade is a non-political event, current office holders are allowed only as office holder, not as a candidate running for re-election or any other office.

A pooper scooper needs to be provided if there are animals in the unit.

To register via mail, you may print the registration form and mail a check with your completed registration.
