Julmarknad - ASI's Christmas Market & Festival 2018

Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Weekend Christmas Market and Festival

  • Saturday, December 1st.  10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, December 2nd.  11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Julmarknad is ASI’s holiday market and festival – and one of our most popular weekends! There will be handmade items for sale by more than 40 talented local and regional artists – including distinctive artisan glass, clothing, wood, jewelry, ceramics and textiles. Our own ASI Museum Store and Jul Shop will also be open for gift seekers to browse more Nordic-inspired items.

The celebration continues throughout the Mansion with special performances by Nordic music and dance groups. Families can make crafts and drop in for story time (kids – be on the look-out for Santa). Stop by the FIKA bake sale for cardamom bread, cookies and other treats to share over the holidays.
