Celebrate with us the richness of Nordic culture 


Look at what Northwesterners hold most dear about Oregon and Southwest Washington and you'll see strong Nordic traditions and values. Today, the Scandinavian Heritage Foundation (SHF) is a catalyst for preserving authentic traditions and culture while celebrating modern Scandinavian life


Whether of Scandinavian descent or simply interested in Nordic countries, SHF members have joined the large pan-Scandinavian family in the Northwest dedicated to preserving, communicating and celebrating Scandinavian cultures, values and traditions.
