Celebrate the Carnival season in the Nordic fashion with this family-friendly afternoon event.
All tickets provide access to unlimited crafts and games. Fastelavn is a fun Carnival for kids where we welcome everyone to come and experience the festivities. Make new friends over a game of gnome toss or during a craft session.
Fastelavn is a Nordic Carnival tradition where kids dress up in costumes, play games for prizes and make fun crafts, and eat traditional fastelavnsboller buns. The highlight of the event is the barrel-bashing, where kids hit a candy-filled barrel to scare away evil spirits..although nowadays the candy is the main goal!
Broder Söder will stay open during the event and feature a special Fastelavn Hot Dog in addition to their regular menu!
Nearby bus lines include the 43 and 45, which has a North- and Southbound stop immediately in front of our building. We have two parking lots, with overflow parking available on 80th and Scholls Ferry. We have handicap parking spaces and ADA-compliant ramps accessing our main entryway.
