There’s Something For Everyone At This Unique Scandinavian Festival In North Dakota
North Dakota’s culture is heavily influenced by Scandinavian countries, so it’s no surprise to hear there is fun Scandinavian festivals here. Every year on the first Sunday of October one of the state’s lovely small towns puts on an Uffda Day. Whether you are of Norwegian, Swedish, or Danish descent or not, you can find plenty to enjoy here. It’s an all day extravaganza of Scandinavia that you don’t want to miss!
