Leif Eriksson International Festival is this year presented through recorded videos, ZOOM meetings, and other online tools. The Mindekirken services on October 10 and October 17 will be in person as well as the live concert at Mindekirken on October 10.
Masks are required in Mindekirken, regardless of your vaccination status. Please mask fully and consistently for the safety and comfort of everyone. After the service, Utekaffe will take place near the canopy (parking lot) entrance.
Masks are not required outdoors but we recommend you wear yours when not eating and when in close conversations. Thank you so much.
