Scandinavian fever hits Fargo-Moorhead

Dancing at Scandinavian FestivalIt is that time again!  Time for the Annual Scandinavian Hjemkomst Festvial in Fargo-Moorhead. The events kicks off on June 25th and runs through the 27th.  This is the place to be if you want to immerse yourself into the Scandinavian culture.  I am being completely serious too.  This event has been recognized as one of “America’s 100 Best” for 2010 by the American Bus Association.  And that is a BIG deal.

So why is it such a big deal?  Well, because there is a lot of everything and everything is done really well.  Authentic foods, arts and activities. It is a Scandinavian mega-festival where you can learn about the culture, get some hands-on learning experiences and enjoy a couple days at the Historical & Cultural Society of Clay County.  The event draws quite a crowd too so don’t discount it until you have checked it out.

Tickets for the event are available online or at the door.  $10 for a day pass or $25 for a 3 day pass.  If you want to call ahead just dial up 701.478.9150

Why should you check it out?

  • It’s a great event.  Period.
