In Norway and Denmark, red pointy hats are worn by the nisse. In Sweden they’re worn by the tomte. In Mount Horeb, they’re worn by anyone who wants to join the fun of the Scandihoovian Winter Festival weekend.
Festival organizers like the playfulness of the hats and the bond they have come to represent. We’re here to celebrate our
community and our heritage.
Scandihoovian is a celebration of winter! Get outside and enjoy winter in Wisconsin. Or stay inside and take part in a unique event. Just looking to enjoy the downtown? Don your red hat and enjoy great specials at our local shops and restaurants.
Whatever you do, get out and get into the Scandihoovian spirit!
