Who We Are

The Scandinavian Society of Western Pennsylvania represents the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.


The Society's purpose is to promote Scandinavian culture and heritage by maintaining and sharing Scandinavian customs and traditions.


The Scandinavian Society is affiliated with the Nationality Rooms Program at the University of Pittsburgh and uses the Universities facilities for its regular meetings.

The Society maintains ties with the Scandinavian Folk Dancers of Pittsburgh, a group devoted to the practice and performing of folk dances of the Scandinavian countries. This group meets regularly for practice and enjoyment of an evening of Scandinavian folklore.
