Scan Fair 2021

Experience the sights, sounds, tastes, and traditions of the Nordic Holiday season. ScanFair brings Scandinavia to Portland through traditional food vendors, locally crafted items, a holiday exhibit, an exciting raffle, and welcoming local community organizations.

This year, ScanFair will return in a modified format to fit within Nordia House and Nordic Northwest’s campus. We invite you to join us for this family favorite event!

Reservations are strongly recommended as space will be extremely limited. Stay tuned for tickets!

Founded in 1986 to support the Nordic language programs at Portland State University, Nordic Northwest has expanded on its original mission over the past three decades to become the home for all things Nordic in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Anchored by a Midsummer festival in June and a Christmas market in December, Nordic Northwest's roster of programming includes concerts, exhibits, family programming, special events, film screenings, lectures, classes, dances, performances and celebrations throughout the entire year that focus on the cultures of Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
