Viking raiders and their descendants return to Grass Valley Saturday for the Viking Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Ponderosa Hall at Nevada County Fairgrounds.

Hosted by the Sons of Norway Guldallen Lodge, the annual call goes out to invite all to join in the ‘Holmganging.’

Attendees also may discover vendors selling eye-pleasing Scandinavian wares for sale as well as the lodge offering a tasty selection of traditional Scandinavian treats such as Norwegian waffles and cookies, Swedish meatballs and potatoes, open-faced sandwiches and more.



The ever-popular Lefse (Norwegian flatbread) will be available along with demonstrations on how to make it — but make haste to come early as it always sells out quickly.

New this year will be Danish Aebleskiver, a sort of apple-shaped pancake.




Several new games and activities for small children have also been added.

Also available is a chance for the ‘Inner Viking’ to shine at our Viking Portrait Booth. Costumes are encouraged.

Fair admission is $3 per person; children under 12 are free. Parking is also free.
