Julebyen (Christmas Village)
Julebyen (Christmas Village)

Knife River Recreation Center | Knife River MN

Julebyen, a Scandinavian-themed Christmas festival, has added a “Troll Village,” family focused on winter outdoor sports gear, books for all ages represented by their local authors and illustrators, a large vintage model railroad display, a Finnish “Whip Sled,” and much more.   It will be held next to Festival grounds.

New this year will be an expansion of Festival Marketplace hours.  The colorful Julebyen vendor huts, a signature of the Festival, will open at 4:30 PM Friday for the Julefest dinner and silent auction in the Gnome Dome, and through Festival hours Sunday.
 
The Troll Train that takes festivalgoers to Troll Canyon Saturday in search of trolls will make three trips this year.
