Put some excitement in your calendar for February and join us for Fastelavn – a Danish carnival for kids!
Take a swing at the barrel piñata, grab some candy, and make crafts like Danish ‘fastelavnsris’. As Danish tradition has it, beating the cat out of the barrel will chase away the winter spirit. The child who breaks the barrel is crowned Cat Queen or Cat King.
Come celebration this Danish tradition with us in Seattle and help us chase away the winter the Danish way!
