The Scandinavian Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on the five Nordic nations -- Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. SHF is the catalyst in the Northwest for preserving authentic traditions and culture while celebrating modern Scandinavian life, culture and business. It is the "go to" regional resource for all things Nordic.

Our new cultural center is STILL CLOSED to the public.
We have moved into our offices at the new building, but the whole site is still under construction and thus still CLOSED to the public. You can keep yourself updated on the building's progress by looking at the Construction Updates page of this website, or you can drive by to see it with your own eyes - but you can't come closer than the sidewalk! Even the parking lot is off limits.

To see more of the building - including the inside! - please mark your calendars for our big public Opening Celebration, to be held on the weekend of June 26-28.
