Free. Family Friendly. Every Thursday night this summer in Downtown Decorah!
Join for an evening at Courthouse Square with the Decorah Nordic Dancers! This Lawn Chair Night is sponsored by Decorah Bank and Trust Company.
This unique group of dancers share traditional folk dances of Scandinavia. Nordic Dancers consist of two groups of area students; the Junior Nordic Dancers and the Senior Nordic Dancers, and are accompanied by the Nordic Dancers Orchestra. This is their annual special performance the week before Decorah’s Nordic Fest — held July 27-29, 2023 in Downtown Decorah.
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.
