Welcome to Julebyen!
Julebyen (YULE-eh-BE-en) is Norwegian for "Christmas Village". It refers to a special time of celebration and gathering in which towns and villages come alive with lights, music and crafts just before Christmas. The village of Knife River, Minnesota (settled by Norwegians in the 1800's) keeps this tradition alive in the United States. Come visit us on December 7th and 8th, enjoy the celebration and take the warm glow of Julebyen with you.
