February 1 & 2

The Danish concept of “hygge” (pronounced hue-gah) has been around for ages. It refers to the ritual of embracing life’s simple pleasures. Feeling relaxed, cozy and surrounded by the warmth of family, friends, community and fire all encompass the idea of Hygge. The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce is bringing a weekend of Hygge to Andersonville during the month of February when folks need a little warming up.

The Hygge Fest Pajama Fun Run returns on Saturday, February 1, 2019. There is a suggested donation of $15 per person and all proceeds benefit Care For Real. Check-in at Elixir Andersonville beginning at 8:30AM. Race starts at 9AM. Prizes include tickets to the Andersonville Wine Walk, beer at Midsommarfest and more.  Click here to register!

Please join us for the first ever Coffee & Hot Cocoa Crawl on Saturday, February 1, 2020. Tickets are $20 and feature two routes! Attendees receive a commemorative Andersonville Coffee Mug with purchase and free pastry at check-in. See route listings below.
