The Kalevala presented by Seattle Storytelling Guild
A telling of the Kalevala
The Nordic Heritage Museum's annual Kalevala Festival is adding a day to the celebration, featuring seventeen storytellers from California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia presenting the Kalevala. The Kalevala, the national epic of Finland, is a collection of ancient runes and song-poems compiled by Elias Lönnrot. Lönnrot’s book has since been published internationally and translated into 63 different languages, and has been a key influencer of Finland's national consciousness, art, and culture.
Come and be inspired by the values, traditions, art,
and spirit of the Nordic peoples.
