Nordic Heritage Club and Nordic Music Fest
The Nordic Heritage Club of Carver County began in 2007 for an awareness of the presence of Nordic People and their contributions to Carver County. The Club grew out of the Friends of Andrew Peterson organization. Andrew Peterson was an immigrant from Sweden whose diaries were the inspiration of Vilhelm Moberg’s books, The Immigrants. Andrew Peterson settled in Carver County and contributed to horticulture with his apples. The Nordic Music Festival began in the fall of 2009 at Lake Waconia Regional Park. It has successfully grown every year to it’s home in Victoria. The idea of the Nordic Music Festival came from the Nordic Heritage Club. The Sons of Norway Scandia Lodge of Waconia joined us in this celebration. The festival is held the Saturday following Labor Day at Victoria Lions Park from 10 to 5.
