Festival Location: Norway House, 3846 Meredith Drive Fairfax, VA 22030 - see  map below. We regret that wheelchairs and strollers cannot be accommodated inside. We do have a chair lift.

Due to the space limitations inside Norway House, we abide with the Fire Marshall's regulations for the number of people who can safely be in Norway House at any one time.  For the past 2 years, we have accommodated walk-in guests as space permits, guests with reservations receive priority entrance.  Walk-in guests may have to wait a few minutes for entrance. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Festival dates! No reservations are required for the Norwegian Cafe, to see the Lundehunds, Norwegian storytelling, play the traditional Norwegian game of Kubb or try your hand at Norwegian Cornhole 

If you are interested in helping, please consider volunteering.
