City Gets Early Start on Scandinavian Festival

April 04, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

The city will take on a Nordic flavor this month in preparation for Cal Lutheran University's upcoming Scandinavian Festival.

All this month, the Thousand Oaks Library on Janss Road will have a display of artifacts and photos of local Scandinavian pioneers, such as the Olsen and Janss families and Richard Pederson, whose 130-acre farm made up most of the original Cal Lutheran campus.

On Saturday, Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Westlake will have storytelling from 10:30 a.m. to noon, costumed chefs preparing Scandinavian dishes, such as krumkake and aebleskivers, from noon to 2 p.m., and Viking exhibitions and weaving demonstrations from 2 to 4 p.m. The event is free.

The Scandinavian Festival, which celebrates Nordic and Baltic cultures, will open April 20 at the university's Kingsmen Park.

The two-day event begins at 10:30 a.m. each day.

Admission to the Scandinavian Festival is $6 for adults, $1 for children ages 6 to 12. For more information, visit the Web site www.clunet.edu/Events/ScanFest. or call 493-3151.
