Andersonville Hygge Fest


February 2 & 3

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.

Please join us for the first ever Hygge 1-Mile PJ Fun Run on Saturday, February 2, 2019. Entry fee is $15 per person and all proceeds benefit Care For Real. Check-in at The SoFo Tap beginning at 11AM. Race starts at noon. Prizes include tickets to the Andersonville Wine Walk, beer at Midsommarfest and more. Come in your PJ’s! Click here to register!
