The Danish Church & Cultural Center!

The Danish Church & Cultural Center is not affiliated nor receives financial support from the Danish National Church (Folkekirken) or the Danish churches abroad (DSUK). Financially, we are self-funded, and rely entirely on member donations and contributions to cover our operating costs (Salaries, maintenance, out
reach, events and more) and to keep our facility available to our members and guests.

We encourage you to support us as part of your regular or annual non-profit organization as we continuously strive to present, promote and preserve Danish customs, culture and heritage through the creative, visual and performing arts in their multi-faceted expressions.

Thank you for your support!

Cultural Holidays

Throughout the year we celebrate Danish holidays. Fastelavn (Danish costume ball for children) in February/March, the children take part in a traditional masquerade. A wooden barrel filled with candy is the peak of the day where the children use a bat to knock it down. The tradition is known in the 18th century in Denmark and has several roots.

Other celebrated holidays include Easter, The Danish Constitution day June 5th, Sankt Hans in June, Independence Day 4th of July, Harvest and much more. We also include fun events such as annual golf and soccer tournaments besides participating with our famous Aebleskive booth at the Orange International Street Fair during Labor Day weekend and the annual Julemarked (Christmas Market) end of November.

In November we prepare for Christmas by hosting a “Klippe Klistre” (Cut & Paste) event for the children, friends and families. Furthermore, Santa visits at the Christmas Tree party in December to the joy and excitement for everyone involved.
