Velkommen, Detroit Norwegians.
Detroit area Norwegians and their friends gather at the Sons of Norway's Nordkap Lodge in Farmington Hills, MI. Nordkap Lodge is the Detroit chapter of the Sons of Norway fraternal organization. It serves as a meeting place and social network for Norwegian and Scandinavian enthusiasts from the entire metro-Detroit area.
Nordkap Lodge is a place to celebrate Norwegian culture. It is an all-ages family friendly nonprofit organization. Here you are not just a face in the crowd--you are a friend. A part of a community. Our members take care of each other. We are dedicated to community service and cultural education. You don't need to be Norwegian to join the Sons of Norway. You just need to have an interest in Nordic culture.
Celebrating Midsummer--St. Hans Eve, June 23rd
Bicentennial Celebration of the 1814 Constitution
Nordkap marked the 17th of May and the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution with a celebration at the Swedish Club. Festivities began with a parade and national anthems at the flagpole on the club's grounds (see image at top of page). It was an occasion for young and old to wear their colorful bunads (immediately above), the national dress of Norway. (Both photos by Bob Giles)
