Scandihoovian Winter Festival - Jordisk Parti: February 1

Join us for a kid-focused, family friendly event in the warm, lighted underground that celebrates our Scandi heritage. Above ground you’ll deck yourselves out in glowing stuff before your cave experience. Participants will travel the South cave passageways at their own pace, meeting up with Nøå in the North Cave for Scandi-GROOVIAN electro-tunes including some Norwegian disco! Then continue on through the East Cave with a guided Winter Glow Tour! Dig in the heated Fossil Dig for rocks, crystals and fossils and build a Glowing Snow Gnome on the terraces behind the Visitor Center! Snacks, beverages and a cash bar will be available in the Visitor Center.
