Event Overview:

Norsk Hostfest is held annually in the fall in the N.D. State Fair Center on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot, N.D., USA. The festival was founded in 1978 by the late Chester Reiten and a group of friends who shared his interest in celebrating their Nordic heritage. The festival, now entering into its 39th year, has grown into North America’s largest Scandinavian festival with tens of thousands of people attending from all over the world.

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.

Norsk Hostfest celebrates Scandinavian culture and heritage of the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.  Each nation is represented in one of the halls in which the festival takes place, and each named after their country's capital city.  The individual styles of each country's entertainment, food, clothes, art, and jewelry can be found throughout Norsk Hostfest and also in the Scandinavian Heritage Park, the only park in the world representing all five Nordic countries.

Exhibitor Information:

Norsk Hostfest actively seeks vendors who have demonstrated a history of producing high quality, Nordic-themed products to participate at the festival. Norsk Hostfest selects vendors by an invitation-only basis.

Craftsmanship and related products must be high quality and have an authentic Scandinavian connection. It also must be artist's own work. Work that falls below quality standards, or work not representative of Scandinavia shall be removed at the discretion of the Viking Market Committee.
