Our Planning and Events team have been very busy coordinating events and ideas for get-togethers, culture, movie and trivia events both at Bethany and around town. The next time you are able to see us, please know that we are working hard behind the scenes to make The Danish Club the best that it can be!
Every year, we have a number of regular events scheduled and are always looking for new ideas. See what we have planned so far here!
Our rich culture includes foods that have been passed down through generations, and through the millenia that Denmark has shared its history with the rest of Scandinavia and Europe. Open-faced sandwiches, herrings, Danish Havarti, and our famous "Rød Grød med Fløde" are only a few delicious items to try. Have a look and enjoy some Danish cooking today!

The Culture of Denmark has some general characteristics often associated with Danish society and everyday culture. Modesty, punctuality but above all equality are important aspects of the Danish way of life. Indeed, deliberate attempts to distinguish oneself from others may be viewed with hostility in line with Jante's Law, respected by some as an unofficial code of Scandinavian conduct.
In Denmark, culture and the arts thrive as a result of the proportionately high amount of government funding they receive, much of which is administered by local authorities so as to involve citizens directly.
Thanks to a system of grants, Danish artists are able to devote themselves to their work just as museums, theatres, and the film institute receive national support.
What is Denmark? What are our beliefs that make us uniquely Danish in the world? In this section, we will attempt to answer that question.
