Norsk Høstfest is North America's largest Scandinavian festival. The event draws thousands of visitors from across the United States, Canada and Scandinavia every year. During the past 20 years, Norsk Høstfest organizers have developed partnerships with couples and families in Minot and the surrounding area who have warmly opened their homes by renting rooms to accommodate guests unable to find available hotel rooms. For many of these host families, it has proven to be a highlight of their year -- they have built lasting friendships, welcoming the same guests back year after year.
