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 Scandinavian.


What's Happening in the Nordic Community?

ScanFair - a success!

We hope you made it out to our 30th annual SCANFAIR! We had a blast celebrating Christmas with our members and friends, and we cannot thank our guests, vendors, staff and volunteers enough for making the weekend such a success! 

Sarah Fagerberg is Oregon's new Official Lucia

Congratulations to Sarah Fagerberg, the official Lucia of Oregon crowned at ScanFair 2014! Sarah, of Norwegian heritage, will receive a $2,500 scholarship to the college of her choice, and runner-up Hailee Ellis, of Norwegian and Swedish heritage, will receive a $1,000 scholarship to the college of her choice. Also welcome the rest of our 2014-2015 Lucia Court: Emma Mullen (N & S), Emilie Tengblad-Kreft (S), Katherine Hughes (N) and Mia Jenson (N, S, F). All these young women do honor to their Nordic heritage!
