Solar Eclipse Dannebrog, NE 2017
August 17, 2017 - August 21, 2017
Due to the scarcity of total solar eclipses worldwide, this event will draw thousands from surrounding states and across the world to Nebraska. Dannebrog is slated to be one of the most unique eclipse viewing sites in central Nebraska. Not only does the total eclipse pass directly over the small community, but its rich Danish, Pawnee and American cultural histories will make Dannebrog a premier entertainment destination for travelers. Dannebrog will host entertainment from Thursday, August 17 through Monday, August 21, kicking everything off with the world-famous Danish Baker slinging pizzas Thursday evening. Representatives from the Pawnee Nation will return to Dannebrog, their home country, with the Southern Thunder Pawnee Drum Group, leading dancers in traditional song and dance. Danish, Pawnee and American vendors, speakers and performers will be on hand throughout the weekend to share their cultural histories, arts, crafts and foods. All of these activities will culminate at two carefully selected viewing sites where the sun will enter total eclipse at 12:58 p.m. on Monday, August 21.
