Fastelavn at the House of Denmark February 10 from 3:30 to 5:30

We celebrate the Danish tradition of Fastelavn (carnival) Saturday, February 10th, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the House of Denmark Cottage and on the Lawn.

We are looking forward to seeing the children in their costumes – and adults, too. The children will be invited to beat a barrel with a bat (‘slå katten af tønden’) to make the goodies inside fall out. There will be a chance for everybody to make ‘fastelavnsris’ (a traditional craft for the season), and to share ‘fastelavnsboller’ (lenten buns). If you would like to bake for us, please let us know.


Please bring your own twigs for the ‘fastelavnsris’!

Participation is free to members of the House of Denmark. Guests (children as well as adults) may join the fun for $5.00 per person.
