Four decades of Scandinavian fun at Norsk Høstfest

Posted: Sep 08 2017
For 40 years, Norsk Høstfest has brought Scandinavian heritage, traditional customs, authentic food and fun to the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot. The event continues to grow and this year will be no exception. There will be more Vikings than ever, in the expanded Viking Village, along with a new souvenir for attendees to take home, the ‘Høstfest –Opoly’ game. This year will feature an ultimate food eating completion called “Uffda… I ate it all,” where contestants will compete in a game of mental wit. Another new feature will be in Stockholm Hall, where MADC in partnership with SkySkopes, a Minot-based drone service provider, and Robot Aviation and eSmart Systems - both Norwegian-based companies - will host the MAGIC Sky Drone Zone booth where pilots will be flying thir drones in a cage for public viewing. This year’s main stage entertainment in the Great Hall of Vikings features eight shows which include musical concerts by bands, including The Doobie Brothers, and Little River Band.
