Find out as you judge for yourself at the Scandinavian AutumnFest and Marknad Celebration slated to take place this Sunday, September 29th, at Vasa Park in Agoura.
In addition to the meatball tournament, the festival plans to have a water slide, a zip line, Swedish Field Games, a Lingonberry pie eating contest, bingo, a meatball eating contest, a host of beautifully crafted souvenirs and goods (marknad is Swedish for market) and lots of Swedish music and dancing.
This sounds like the best way to enjoy the traditions and tastes of Sweden without having to board a plane and travel across the globe.
Vasa Park is a beautiful park in Triunfo Canyon in Agoura Hills, California on 24 acres of hills for horseback riding and a lovely little stream. The private park is owned and operated by the Vasa Order of America, a fraternal society of Swedish Americans founded more than a century ago as a benefit fraternal society for Swedish immigrants to the United States.
What better place to try authentic Swedish Meatballs and celebrate all things Scandinavian!
