Begin celebrating the holiday season at the Museum of Danish America!

Julefest is an annual celebration held in the Danish Villages of Elk Horn-Kimballton on the Friday and Saturday immediately following Thanksgiving. Both communities will be festively decorated for Christmas. 2020 Schedule >



At the museum we invite you to enjoy the current exhibitions, live piano music, and festive decorations in the museum's “hyggelig julestue" on Friday and Saturday. We have crafts for the kids . . . both young and old . . . Fun for the entire family!

The museum's Genealogy Center on Main Street will be open on Friday by appointment only.

Visit our Design Store stocked with gifts for the entire family: beautiful jewelry, decor, Danish spreads and treats, and of course, the Annual Keepsake Ornament and Christmas Cards.

Admission during Julefest is FREE for the museum!


See our Design Store for our annual Christmas card and ornament. Place your order early as there is a limited supply.
