We are a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to maintaining and enjoying Norwegian heritage and culture in the Saskatoon area. We have operated the Saskatoon Norwegian School, as part-time evening classes since 1983. We instruct both beginner and intermediate language classes. Norwegian Folk Dance is taught in collaboration with Saskatoon International Folk Dance Club Saskatoon International Folkdance Club (saskatoonfolkdance.ca)
From time to time we also sponsor craft classes such as rosemaling, wood carving, Hardanger embroidery and preparation of traditional foods.
We both participate in and sponsor various cultural events throughout the year, such as the Heritage Festival at Western Development Museum and the Norwegian Pavilion at Folkfest. We also maintain a scholarship fund to assist young people in further study in Norway.
Our yearly Norwegian Christmas service is usually held at Zion Lutheran church – also see events calendar for time and date.
