Julebyen 2015

Dec. 5 & 6
Knife River, Minnesota


Velkommen to Julebyen!!

Julebyen (pronounced YOOL-eh-BE-en) means "Christmas Village". It is a centuries-old Scandinavian and German tradition celebrated with ethnic foods, crafts, holiday decorations, and music. This December, Knife River (a fishing village of the North Shore of Lake Superior just north of Duluth) is home to an authentic, and unique Julebyen fest.


At Julebyen you will find an Outdoor Market with foods and unique, hand-made gifts by local artisans, an Indoor Bazaar full of hand-crafted decorations for your home, children's activities (craft workshops, outdoor recreation, animals, lots more). There is much to explore. You can drive or take the train! You can even join the Tour of Homes for an inside look at local residences decorated for the season.

Come and enjoy the celebration!
