Sponsoring the Syttende Mai parade is expensive. We appreciate all financial support we receive. Our costs average $6,000 - $8,000 to cover insurance for the day, facilities, city fees, parade groups, etc.
Funding is achieved through the sale of program book advertisements/greetings, sales at our table in Hodges Park during the parade, and private donations. We hope you continue to support the parade and encourage you to donate now. The GoFundMe goal is $15,000. Contributions not used for the 2018 Norwegian Day Parade will be allotted towards future Norwegian Day parades.
The League also hosts a banquet in celebration of Norway's Constitution Day.
