The Annual Festival Meaning “Christmas Village” is a Centuries Old Tradition

The Scandinavian and German Event Offers Food, Music, Decorations and More

If you plan on decking the halls or doing some of your holiday shopping this weekend, you might want to reschedule your plans.

The fourth annual Julebyen Festival will be happening this weekend in Knife River.

Julebyen means “Christmas Village”. It is a centuries–old Scandinavian and German tradition celebrated with ethnic foods, crafts, holiday decorations, and music. Knife River (a fishing village of the North Shore of Lake Superior just north of Duluth) is home to an authentic, and unique Julebyen fest.

The event is free and open to the public.

Festivities get underway Friday with the Julefest from five until 8:30p.m.

At Julebyen you will find an Outdoor Market with foods and unique, hand–made gifts by local artisans, an Indoor Bazaar full of hand–crafted decorations for your home, children’s activities (craft workshops, outdoor recreation, animals, lots more). There is much to explore. You can drive or take the train! You can even join the Tour of Homes for an inside look at local residences decorated for the season.

Come and enjoy the celebration!
