Scandinavian Festival - Sunday 14 September 2014 10AM-6PM

Calling stallholders and volunteers! Raffle ticket sellers! Jugglers! Bearded ladies! Magicians! Street musicians!

The Scandinavian Festival returned 2012 after a 22 year break and it was an absolute success not only for the Danish Club celebrating our 140th birthday but also for our relations within the Scandinavian community, it is now the third year after the break, however we do need help and if you can volunteer 2 or 4 hours on the day please contact Soren our President.
By putting the spotlight on Scandinavia, we attracted many Scandinavian visitors and all clubs gained new members. Far from all Danes – and other Scandinavians - living in Brisbane and surrounds are aware of our club, so it is an important opportunity to increase awareness.
The festival included entertainment by the Danish Folk Dancers and KUPALEJA, and we are hoping that this year’s event will bring more Danish and Scandinavian entertainers.
The festival also presented an opportunity for typical Danish crafts to be displayed and sold to the public – bead weaving, Christmas decorations, furniture, clothing and much more – remember if YOU are producing typical Danish craft, you can also attend with a stall.
The first year was a steep learning curve and we are looking for more volunteers to come in and give a hand here in 2014 – anything from a couple of hours to the full day – the committee members are hard at it all day – and days before that, and getting support from members is crucial to making this a long term success.
The result from the sales of Danish food was a great boost to our budget, so it is definitely a worthwhile exercise and it replaces our annual participation in the Queensland Multicultural Festival – which sort of replaced the Warana Festival of the past – the common factor is that the Danish Club has always been an active part of these community events and it is important for us to continue our involvement.
Please let me or any member of the committee know that you would like to participate – we will call volunteers and stallholders to meetings closer to the event and discuss tasks and times. / Søren

Carsten Knudsen Feb 2014 - Show great success

Carsten took the initiative and contacted the Danish Club about 2 years ago to arrange an evening’s entertainment at the Danish Club in Brisbane, and the day finally came when around 100 members and guests could enjoy his show with comedy and musical entertainment.
When in Denmark Carsten of course performs in Danish, however, in consideration of the Australians in the audience, the show was performed mostly in English – some things you just can’t translate but it was classic Carsten Knudsen and all enjoyed themselves immensely.
It’s not often we get the opportunity to present a live performance by a talented Danish musician and we would like to thank Carsten very much for making the trip to Australia and sharing his talent with us.

Friday 28 February at Café Danmark we will screen a DVD given to us by Carsten Knudsen of a show in Denmark – this will be the first official meeting of the Carsten Knudsen Fan Club of Brisbane.
Soren Nielsen has been appointed President of the Carsten Knudsen Fan Club and will conduct the DVD presentation of the show.
