Last year, I flew to Minneapolis and transferred to a smaller plane to get to this small North Dakota city, Minot. This year, I will be taking the plunge and driving over 1,000 miles across Washington, Idaho, Montana and finally into North Dakota.
This will be a very exciting year for Norsk Høstfest. They will be celebrating their 40th Annual festival. This will be my second time attending this event. The largest Scandinavian Festival in North America with five halls stacked full of everything Scandinavia!
Norsk Høstfest is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that raises funds to preserve, improve and share Scandinavian culture, heritage and educational programs. Program focus areas include Høstfest in the Schools, Scandinavian Youth Camp, the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame, Skien-Minot sister city relationship, and Norsk Høstfest.
The festival features world-class entertainment, authentic Scandinavian cuisine, Scandinavian culture on display, handcrafted Norsk merchandise, plus a fine dining establishment lead by guest chefs.
