Julebyen (Christmas Village)
Julebyen (Christmas Village)

Knife River Recreation Center | Knife River MN

Enjoy all things Scandinavian – and search for Trolls – during the three day Julebyen Christmas Festival.  Julebyen celebrates Scandinavian Christmas traditions in crafts, music and food, and characters from mythology.  Five “Troll Trains To Troll Canyon” will take festivalgoers through the woods of Knife River in search of Trolls. She said last year about 1,000 went seeking mischievous trolls and none were disappointed. The North Shore Scenic Railroad’s Julebyen Express train will take festivalgoers to the festival and back departing the Duluth Depot Saturday and Sunday mornings.

New in 2019 – Anne Jorunn Syvertse, our first designer, artist, and crafter from Norway. She has shown her knitted creations from ‘sweaters to pot-holders’ and hand-stitched cards, pillows, pictures and table cloths at all the major Scandinavian-themed festivals in the U.S.

Highlights of the seventh annual Julebyen include indoor and outdoor marketplaces, bakery, entertainment in the “Gnome Dome,” a “Writer’s Corner” in Troll Village, a live nativity and celebration of music Sunday sponsored by the Knife River Lutheran Church, winter outdoor fun and children’s games.

Friday evening kicks off weekend activities with a Julefest and silent auction in the Gnome Dome at 4 pm.
Saturday hours are 9 am – 5 pm, Sunday hours are 10 am – 4 pm.

Julebyen is free to the public. Some activities require reservations and an admission. For complete information on events and schedules:
