National Day of Norway (Norwegian Constitution Day)

Norges Nasjonaldag, Syttende Mai

Syttende Mai, Norsewood 2009Celebrate the National Day of Norway at Norsewood.

Norway's National Day is celebrated in Norsewood on the Sunday closest to 17 May each year.

Registration of new visitors begins at 10:00am.

Please bring a plate of finger food (food you can eat with your fingers) for the shared lunch.

Constitution Day, Norway's national day (17 May), marks the day when Norway became a free and independent nation. In Norway, it is a major day of celebration, equalled only by Christmas and New Year.

Norsewood commemorates this day, which highlights its unique heritage. Most of the first settlers at Norsewood were Norwegians, who developed the land from the virgin forest. We acknowledge their dedication, sacrifices and determination against many odds.

Constitution Day has become a focal point for the early settlers descendants, ex-nationals, others with a Scandinavian interest, and locals. It is attended by people from all over New Zealand.

In Norway the day is centred on children, and local children are an integral part of the celebrations. Everyone is welcome to join in.
