Birkie Baby

Nominations for the 2023 Birkie Baby are open until November 30, 2022.

What is the Birkie Baby? 

Every year the Canadian Birkebeiner Ski Festival chooses a Birkie Baby to represent our Legend’s crown prince, Haakon Haakonsson. 

What is the role of the Birkie Baby?

The Birkie Baby is treated like a prince or princess, as they (and their parents/guardians) attend various events throughout the Birkie weekend. Events the Birkie Baby attend include the starting ceremony of Ole’s Tour, the Viking’s Feast, and the Barnebirkie

2022 Birkie Baby

Meet our 2022 Birkie Baby, Jack (pictured right). Jack is named after his grandfather, who was the 2018 Ole Hovind Award winner; and both of Jack’s parents, Patrick and Tara, are avid Birkie participants.

Thank you, Jack, for doing such a great job at being our 2022 Birkie Baby!
