Our Mission

The mission of the Scandinavian Cultural Center of Santa Cruz is to:

•  Promote an awareness of Nordic culture in Santa Cruz County – this includes the cultures of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and the Saami people.

•  Preserve the Nordic traditions and heritage

About Us

SCCSC is a nonprofit educational organization incorporated in 1994 to promote and preserve Scandinavian and Nordic culture.  The organization is managed by a Board of Directors and holds its meetings in the Viking Hall building in Santa Cruz.  The hall is also available for rental.

We sponsor activities and special interest groups to enrich cultural understanding and foster friendships.  Activities include educational speakers, demonstrations, performances, workshops, and dinners featuring traditional Nordic food.  Anyone with an interest in Nordic culture is invited to participate.  Cultural programs are open to all.  At Christmastime, Scandinavian gifts and crafts are available at our Butik.

    My grandmother was Finnish (Kargela).
    My grandfather was Norwegian (Strom).
    We had a Finnish Yogurt, called Villia or Fillia, up in Northern Michigan. I would like to get a starter from someone locally. I live in Live Oak, by Santa Cruz, CA. Does anyone know of any Finnish folks in the area?
    Thank you,

    My name is Luke and I’m a current account manager for Reduce My Accent. I see your company promotes the Scandinavian culture in your community through services, activities and programs.

    Our company provides accent reduction services which is greatly beneficial to someone looking to start or grow here in California.

    I was curious if you would be willing to offer our services to anyone interested? We would be happy to send over promotional material if you would be kind enough to post them. We would also be able to payout for every lead generated by your business, or work a commission for every sale. We would love to work with you in anyway we can.

    We believe our service has great value to the community, and we have already worked with hundreds of people to help them acclimate more to the daily life here. We would be happy to work with you and the community so we can help provide this service to the masses.

    For any questions or inquiries, please feel free to call me at 417.213.8379 or send an email to marketing@reducemyaccent.ca

    Thank you.

    My mother, 93 years old, who is of Finnish descent, would like to hear the Lord’s Prayer in Finish. She would like to remember how to say it. Do you have someone who knows it, who could record it and I could play it for her? We live in the Santa Cruz area. Thank you , Tina Solinas (Wirkkala)
