The 17th of May Norwegian Day Parade Committee has made the decision to hold off on their annual parade until May 16, 2021. This is only the second time since the parade’s inception in 1952, that it has been cancelled. However, with the unprecedented impact the Covid-19 virus is having on the country and the parade’s hometown - NYC, it made sense to make the decision now. Along with the parade we have also cancelled our Dinner Dance and the Church Rally all dated during May.
“It is not a time for celebration, but mourning, as lives are being lost and our Emergency Workers, many our neighbors, are impacted in such a devastating way.” “We have already begun planning for 2021, when we hope our beloved city has recovered from this unprecedented devastation.” “Then, a celebration will be long overdue.” Arlene Bakke Rutuelo, Parade Chair
The purpose of the Norwegian-American 17th of May Committee of Greater New York, INC. shall be to encourage and develop a deep appreciation of the ideals of independence and freedom that the 17th of May, Constitution day of Norway, embodies and to keep alive the cultural heritage of Norway. Rain of shine, on the 17th of May of each year, or the Sunday closest to this date (excluding Mother's Day). The Committee shall make arrangements for and sponsor a parade.
