WHO ARE WE?

We are a diverse network of Norse and Norse-Americans living here in Tucson and Southern Arizona. Anyone with an interest in Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland) is welcome to join with us. Founded as a registered non-profit organization, our club has been connecting our community and promoting our rich national and cultural heritage for over 4 decades.

If you are looking to connect with your heritage, practice your language skills, meet new friends, explore Nordic culture, and more — drop us a line or stop by our next event! We host family-friendly events throughout the year

celebrating our rich cultural heritage and current events.

Why our changes?

As of January 1, 2021, our club is officially an independent local organization and no longer a chapter of the former Norwegians Worldwide (NWW) in Oslo. This is due to NWW’s recent merger with the Norway-America Association (NORAM) and the resulting shift in mission and goals. In order to maintain our focus on culture, heritage, language, and participate fully in the local events which are so important to us!

On the local level, we are the same club you know and love! We see this as an opportunity to focus more efforts and funds on the community we have built right here in the Tucson metro area, and also broaden our local outreach. While we will no longer be chartered with a parent organization, our club will continue on as an independent association with an even closer focus on serving the needs and interests of our local members.  You can expect the same dedication to Norwegian cultural heritage with year-round events celebrating Norwegian holidays, traditional food and drink, Scandinavian music and dance, and more.

As always, anyone is welcome to join and/or participate! Persons with Norse heritage, people from any of the Nordic countries living here in Arizona, and anyone with an interest in Scandinavia. We can’t wait to see you soon! 

Norwegians celebrate the summer solstice on the eve of 24th of June by lighting large bonfires. The most impressive one burns in the town of Alesund. These celebrations coincide with the period of the midnight sun, which bathes the spectacular surrounding fjords in a magical light. While the locals enjoy this brief respite before the onset of winter, Arctic foxes raise their young in the mountains. Midsummer in Norway is more than a bonfire on St. John's Eve. It's a brief sigh of relief: Midsummer in Norway is a time when the sun never quite disappears behind the horizon, a time when Norwegians celebrate the end of the long winter, a brief sigh of relief. Apart from the festivities, there's a lot to explore in this short summer. As a sparsely populated country, nature is dominating in Norway. We travel through magnificent landscapes from the south to the north across the Arctic circle.

Nordic Fair has been cancelled* But Read below for more Information!

This November 10th 2025

Norse in Tucson will be hosting a Scandinavian Open House replacing Nordic Fair.

Norse in Tucson began Nordic Fair 43 years ago, however due to rising costs Norse in Tucson is again going back to our Fantastic Open House we did in 2019 just prior to COVID. Our Open House will be unique, and we will feature Norse  demonstrations, like how to make Lefse, paint Rosemaling, for a few, and we will still feature our Scandinavian Leikarring Folk Dancers and LIVE musicians like Aurora Borealis and Freya's Sang with Erika Randolph and Live Hardanger Fiddle music by Dorothy. Keep checking back to see what more we will have added to this special Event.
