Norwegian National League

The Norwegian National League is the place to celebrate Norwegian American traditions and connect with Scandinavian events in the Chicagoland area.  We are the “umbrella” organization for many of the area’s Norwegian-American organizations and sponsor scholarships and three events during the year (Syttende Mai banquet and parade, a Leif Erikson celebration, and Christmas Around the World.

Check our calendars for upcoming member & special events.

***SOME HIGHLIGHTS***
