Folk Dancers at Tivoli Fest in Elk Horn, IowaFor over 100 years the Danish Villages have been a great place to live, work and raise our families. We are thankful for our heritage and for the sacrifices made by the Danish immigrants who settled this area. They built a community that maintained Old World traditions while pursing American dreams. The Tivoli Fest Committee's goal is to honor the community's Danish heritage throughout the generations by celebrating at our annual Tivoli Fest. We invite you to come visit us Memorial Day weekend and be Danish for a day!
