This Scandinavian Festival In North Dakota Is The Largest In America – And It’s A Must See

Did you know that a large portion of North Dakotans are of Scandinavian descent? Many Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Icelandic, and Finnish people immigrated to this state in the late 1800s and early 1900s. With them, they brought their history, heritage, and of course those delicious family recipes, many of which have remained in families to this day. Every year, this heritage is celebrated in the largest festival of its kind in all of North America. It’s happening again in 2019 and you definitely don’t want to miss it.

The Norsk Høstfest will be taking place from September 25th to the 28th, 2019 at the North Dakota State Fair Grounds at the address below. For a full schedule of events, list of vendors, and applications to sign up for some of the activities, visit the festival’s official website.

Address: 2005 Burdick Expressway East, Minot, ND, 58701
