PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — This weekend Nordic Northwest is bringing the traditions of a Scandinavian Christmas market to Portland.

Scanfair will feature food, drinks and plenty of activities.

“It’s all about experiencing the sights, sounds, taste and traditions of a Nordic Christmas market,” said Anette from Nordic Northwest. “Now, if you were to go over to Norway, Sweden, you know any of those countries this is exactly what it would feel like. It’s all just about those traditions coming alive and that’s through all our food and drink, all of our vendors and wears.”

With about 100 different vendors participating in the event, attendees will stay busy whether it be participating in food contests, crafts and games for children or photos with Santa. Those attending can also enjoy watching the performers, dancers and musicians that will be on stage through the weekend.

Attendees will be able to join the raffle for a chance to win a prize from the 30 up for grabs. The funds raised through the raffle go to Nordic Northwest, a nonprofit focused on preserving Nordic culture in the Pacific Northwest.

The nearly 40-year event runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oregon Convention Center.
