2022 Nordic House Pop-Up at the Wrigley Building

September 1 - December 22

The Nordic House in Chicago will showcase the uniqueness of the Nordic region. It will be a place of refuge in an otherwise busy and energetic city. It will provide visitors with an immersive experience of the Nordic region through images and videos, but also offer the best of what the respective Nordic countries have to offer in terms of quality retail products, food, and culture. The Nordic House will be the place where exciting things happen.

Cultural:

The Swedish American Museum in Chicago is an expert at setting up temporary exhibits and will use the Nordic House as an additional exhibit space for the Museum which is located in the Andersonville neighborhood in Chicago. Coordinated or themed Nordic events will be hosted. These could include, but are not limited to, Nordic authors, musicians, and food related events.

Business:

The Nordic House will be ideal to partner with for events to showcase Nordic innovation and products. We are looking to host themed Nordic events such as “Nordic Outdoor, Nordic Design, or Nordic Food”.

Retail:

The retail section will offer a selection of gift items, books, textiles, toys, food, candy, and more to showcase the design and quality of the Nordic countries.

Relaxation:

Come in, decompress, and enjoy fresh Icelandic mineral water and Nordic edibles in an environment that will bring your imagination to Northern Europe and its clean air, open country, and green forest.
