2023 Update

Solvang Danish Days 2023 : Are you ready?!

California’s premier Danish heritage festival, Solvang Danish Days, returns this year with a three-day event line-up, Friday through Sunday, September 15, 16, and 17, 2023. The 2023 Solvang Danish Days theme – “Kom Sammen” (“Come Together” in English) – will be celebrated during this year’s event, which honors the 1911 establishment of Solvang by Danish-Americans. The 2023 edition of Solvang Danish Days marks the 86th return of the beloved, annual cultural affair.

Solvang Danish Days 2023 will continue to offer attendees a total Danish immersion experience while helping to preserve Solvang’s authentic Danish heritage. Danish Days guests looking to “live like Vikings” throughout the event will have the opportunity to purchase a “Dane For A Day” VIP ticket bundle (only available online), while those looking to gain quicker entrance to Saturday’s or Sunday’s Æbleskiver Breakfasts may purchase tickets for the Breakfasts online, in advance. All advance, online tickets will soon be available for sale at this link: solvang-danish-days-2023.eventbrite.com

The preliminary 2023 Solvang Danish Days event weekend schedule will also be available (eventually) on this page of our site. More information about Solvang Danish Days, including a brief history of the event, parade applications and complete contact information, is also available. Solvang Danish Days is on Facebook and Instagram at facebook.com/SolvangDanishDays and @DanishDays.

Please Note: If you plan to make a weekend of it, research and book your Solvang Danish Days hotel rooms as far in advance as possible. Review each hotel’s cancellation policies to ensure a refund of your stay, if you need to cancel for any reason.
