The Scandinavian Cultural Center of Santa Cruz invites you to our annual Lucia festival, to be held at the First Congregational Church of Santa Cruz. Join us as we celebrate the pageantry of the candlelit procession with Lucia, her attendants and star boys, accompanied by Swedish songs of Christmas performed by the Zaida Singers. Afterwards Jultomten (Scandinavian Santa Claus) leads the way to refreshments and folk dancing around the Christmas tree. Children are invited to paint traditional Dala horses at our activity table.

Our Butik will be offering fine Scandinavian gifts and household items for purchase.

Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Nordic winters. Alongside Midsummer, the Lucia celebration represents one of the foremost cultural traditions in Scandinavia. This is a wonderful way for your family to begin the Holiday season. Please join us.

Cost: $5 adults, $3 ages 5-12, $15 families, under 5 no charge
