Mission Statement

SAGA of the Carolinas, a non-profit organization, is organized to promote cultural exchange between the United States and the Nordic Countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden; to preserve and enjoy the Scandinavian traditions, customs, history and cultural heritage; to increase understanding of the Nordic people and societies among Americans; and to provide a forum where people interested in Scandinavia can meet and enjoy Nordic culture and activities.

Description

SAGA of the Carolinas brings together local Scandinavians and people with an interest in Scandinavian culture, in order to celebrate our traditions through an annual festival called "ScanFest", which is Charlotte-Mecklenburg's only annual celebration of Scandinavian food and culture. SAGA also participates in UNCC's annual International Festival, and offers various social events throughout the year.
