Danish Days Maids Through the Years
Since 1967, a Danish Maid has been selected each year to represent Solvang and demonstrate the town’s hospitality. The Maid makes appearances throughout the year and has an honorary role in Danish Days festivities.
Although we can’t share the smell of the æbleskiver and medisterpølse breakfast through video, we can share the sites and sounds of bands and energetic folk dancers entertaining crowds.
