Free. Family Friendly. Every Thursday night this summer in Downtown Decorah.
Join on June 15 for an evening of traditional Scandinavian folk tunes on Washington Street with lynx lynx! This Lawn Chair Night is held in partnership with Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum and Folk Art School.
Vidar Skrede and Patrik Ahlberg join their Scandinavian fiddle forces together in this Norwegian-Swedish folk music duo – lynx lynx. The variety of strings includes fiddles, Hardanger fiddles, guitars, and even a mandolin. The mix of tunes is put together by both their original and traditional Nordic fiddle tunes.
Lawn Chair Night has been a program of Downtown Decorah Betterment for more than 25 years. It’s now made possible by DDBA in partnership with Visit Decorah Tourism and Impact Coffee, along with generous contributions from top sponsor AJ Realty and more than 10 supporting sponsors. This free, public event features both local and regional talent. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and their toe tappin’ shoes. In 2023, three performances will take place at the Courthouse and ten will be on Washington Street. For the Washington Street shows, attendees are encouraged to purchase a beverage at Impact Coffee, our event partner.
In the event of rain, the Courthouse events will be cancelled or moved to a different location and the Washington Street events will be moved inside Impact Coffee. Rain announcements will be made on Facebook’s Visit Decorah page and the Downtown Decorah Betterment page.
