JulefestÒ 2014

Julefest in the Danish Villages
"Jul" Love It!

November 28 * 29




ELK HORN and KIMBALLTON, Iowa – Getting into the holiday spirit is easy in the Danish Villages. Celebrated the weekend after Thanksgiving, Julefest offers visitors a way to kick start the Christmas season.

For thirty six years, this magical festival has warmed hearts and provided a way to celebrate all things Danish. Julefest promises an array of traditional Danish food and tasty treats such as pastries, wine, glögg, pebbernødder, and rollepølse. Search for unique Christmas presents and decorations at gift shops, specialty stores and craft fairs in both towns. Make the most of a winter's day and listen to a Christmas concert, and watch for Father Christmas strolling through town.

Relish in the festive atmosphere of the villages - both towns will be decorated for Christmas and the streets lined with Danish and American flags. Pick up a brochure with a map of the local merchants and happenings at any of the Danish Villages businesses. Contact the Danish Windmill at (800) 451-7960.

Elk Horn and Kimballton are located in southwest Iowa, off I-80, 6 and 9 miles north of Exit 54 and no passport is required!
