Little Norway Festival

Petersburg, AK 99833

This annual celebration dates back to May 17th, 1958 when two local women, Bernadine Trones and Alma Wallen chaired the first Little Norway Festival in celebration of our unique Norwegian heritage. Syttende Mai or May 17th, celebrates the signing of Norway's Constitution in 1814. Petersburg's Little Norway Festival has grown over these last 49 years to span the 3rd weekend of May and celebrates not only Norway's Constitution, but U.S. Armed Forces Day, the coming of spring and beginning of the fishing season.
