Norsk Høstfest: 40 Years of Pure Scandimonium!

September 27-30, 2017 – Minot, ND

Four days of fun and adventure await your groups at North America’s largest Scandinavian festival! Their 40th anniversary celebration this year brings some big acts to the Great Hall of the Vikings. See the Oak Ridge Boys, Celtic Thunder, Amy Grant, Jeff Dunham, Joe Diffie, John Michael Montgomery, The Doobie Brothers, and Little River Band.

While the big entertainment draws the crowds at Norsk Høstfest, there are plenty of other things to see and do. Bring your groups to the Nordic Kitchen to learn new culinary techniques, shop for one-of-a-kind gifts among hundreds of vendors, indulge in Scandinavian cuisine, or enroll in Høstfest University classes and become educated in artisan crafts from an expert instructor. In the Author’s Corner, guests can meet some of their favorite authors such as Lauraine Snelling and Astrid Karlsen Scott.

The proud heritage of Scandinavia is alive and on display at all the shopping booths at Norsk Høstfest. From the Clog Shop to the Import Shop to the Sølje Shop and the General Store, unique and fascinating stores are easily found in the International Marketplace. Purchase silver jewelry, Norwegian sweaters, authentic Scandinavian gifts, fine arts, souvenirs, and much more. The handcrafted items you’ll find for sale are like the experiences you’ll have at Høstfest: truly one-of-a-kind!

Vendors at Høstfest come from all five Nordic countries: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland. Every year, an elite team of Norwegian chefs arrives and serves at the festival’s pop-up restaurants: Scandi and En To Tre. Scandi serves traditional, homemade Norwegian cuisine, while En To Tre offers a stylish, fine dining experience (reservations required).

At the Tromsø Cultural Village, your groups will find presenters and Viking re-enactors from Arctic Norway, along with Vikings from Scandinavia, the U.S. and Canada. Watch real sword battles and learn about their culture.
