About the Solvang Danish Days Foundation
In early 1995, the Solvang City Council approached Santa Ynez Valley residents from long-established, local Danish families and other interested groups about possibly setting up a non-profit foundation - Solvang Danish Days Foundation - to formally plan and organize the increasingly popular, annual Danish Days festivities.
Since Solvang Danish Days' modest beginnings in 1936, when
the festival debuted to commemorate the village's 25th
anniversary, the event has set out to celebrate Solvang's Danish
heritage with authentic food, music, dancing, parades, live
entertainment, and family activities.
