Bazaar History

Our first Norwegian Christmas Bazaar was held in 1967 at the Washington Hilton Hotel. We have had an annual Christmas bazaar ever since. This event serves both as a fundraiser and as outreach to the community.

From 1997-2008, our bazaar was part of the Royal Norwegian Embassy’s Christmas at Union Station. From 2009-2012, our bazaar was held at the Fairfax Elks Club, and in 2013 it moved to a new location at Christ Lutheran Church in Fairfax, directly across the street from our lodge's home at the Norway House.
