The luncheon, entitled BRYLLUPSFEST -- A Norwegian Wedding, will begin at 11:30 am on Saturday, July the first, in the beautiful historic Hotel Winnesheik/Steyer Opera House, located in downtown Decorah.  (Be sure to note that this event is on Saturday, not the usual Friday).

The luncheon program will be a re-enactment of a traditional Norwegian wedding including a wedding procession in authentic Norwegian festive dress.  The program committee will provide a commentary on Norwegian wedding traditions, as the couple progresses from falling in love, to engagement and finally to the BRYLLUPSFEST.  Karen Solgrd, well-known Hardanger fiddler from Minnesota will be the featured performer.

Attendees are invited to wear a bunad or the appropriate dress for a wedding. This delightful event is a must for your itinerary as part of your visit to Decorah for the 56 th Sangerfest

The committee for this event is being chaired by Gail Judisch and Eloise Hoff, both are spouses of Luren members.
