Midtsommer celebration


The Midtsommer Gala Celebration is our annual signature event set near the summer solstice each year. The gala dinner features our “Going Viking” awards, where we honor Norwegian-Americans who have significantly advanced the quality of life for others through their adventuresome spirit and extraordinary accomplishments. The event also raises key funds that support all Norway House programs throughout the year.

Thank you to all of those who came out to support the 2016 Midtsommer Gala and helping to raise $103,000 for Norway House.    Congratulations to the 2016 Going Viking honoree – Paul D. Erickson and the honored partner organization, Norwegian-American Bygdelagenes Fellesraad
