Midnattsolen (Arlington and Mid-Cities)
Our Chapter covers Arlington and the mid-cities area of the Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex.
Midnattsolen (Midnight Sun) celebrates Syttende Mai, Sankthansaften, Leif Eiriksson Day (Shrimp Boil) and Juletrefest every year. The events have been held at various venues over the years including local parks, member’s homes, churches, etc.
Other annual events include the Midnattsolen Birthday Party, Breakfast in the Park and Membership Wine and Cheese Party in November.
Over the years Midnattsolen members have participated in area Norwegian events at the State Fair of Texas, Heritage Festival, Viking Festival, West by West Fest and the Folk Life Festival.
Based on the availability of instructors, the chapter has offered Norwegian Language, Genealogy and Norwegian cooking classes.
If you are interested in becoming a member of this organization, it is not required that you be of Norwegian descent, only that you will enjoy, preserve, and promote our Norwegian heritage.
