Event Description

Welcome to Seattle’s popular 17th of May Celebration, a.k.a. Syttende Mai [Soot-n-duh My]. Last year was one of the largest yet with 1,000’s of spectators lining the streets of Ballard for the parade to see more than 100 groups including marching bands, Norwegian-American lodges, drill teams, classic cars and much more – all for Norway’s Constitution Day.

In addition to the popular parade there are other events going on all day including music and dancing at Bergen place, a luncheon, kids events and free admission to the Nordic Heritage Museum, and more.
