Price of admission:

  • Member: $15
  • Non-member: $20
  • Child: $10

Ticket includes:

  • Concert (approximately 1 hour)
  • Waffles
  • Beverage (coffee, tea or soft drink)

We’ll have an array of the traditional Swedish waffle irons that make thin, crispy, heart-shaped waffles. Served with strawberry jam and sweetened whipped cream.

“Våffeldagen” (Waffle Day in Swedish) stems from a mispronunciation. The traditional Feast of the Annunciation, or “Vårfrudagen” (Our Lady’s Day) in Swedish sounds an awful lot like “Våffeldagen”, and so over time, this became less about the conception of Jesus, and more about crispy, delightful waffles.

In earlier times most Swedes were poor, living off the land and coping with a very harsh climate. Late March marked the start of the crop growing season and the increased availability of eggs and milk. As eggs symbolized the start of spring, it became popular to use them to make waffles to celebrate.

Welcome!

She binds together intimate, heartfelt songs with personal anecdotes from her many tours in the USA and Europe, creating a warm and relaxed environment for the audience.
