COME TO THE KALEVALA EPIC!
The Nordic Heritage Museum & SSG invite you to a celebration of Finland's Centennial through story.
Where Else Can You See Seventeen Storytellers From Across the West Coast In One Afternoon!
Together we will share Finland's national epic, the Kalevala, a story steeped in magic, recounting the mythic history of ancient heroes. And what a stunning line-up! From British Columbia, we will feature Nan Gregory, Mary Gavan, Philomena Jordan, Allice Bernards, Patricia Smith and Abigail Fisher Lang. Cathryn Fairlee joins us from CA, Leslie Slape and Julie Stroznyk from OR and Ingrid Nixon from Port Angeles. Jane Valencia and Allison Cox will come from Vashon Island and Jill Johnson from Whidbey Island and our local storytellers will be Katherine Gee Perrone, Barry McWilliams, Larry Hohm and Sandra Niman.
Admission is $15, which also allows visitors to tour all three floors the Nordic Heritage Museum including the Marimekko Textile exhibit. The museum opens at 10 am so there will be time to see it all. And return on Sunday, March 26th when there will be dancing, singing, music and home brewed sahti. Hurrah!
