Hygge Festival

February 8 - February 14

Third Annual Hygge Festival February 8 – 14th, 2019

The Danish concept of “hygge” (pronounced hoo-gah) has been around for a long time. It refers to the ritual of embracing life’s simple pleasures. Feeling relaxed, cozy and surrounded by the warmth of family, friends, community and fire all encompass the idea of hygge.
