parking and stay Questions
Parking is FREE thanks to our partners Hight Construction and our friends at Moose International. You can leave your vehicle there over-night, but must be picked up prior to 8 am the next morning.
Norsk Høstfest is located on the North Dakota State Fairgrounds, which has a large parking lot to the East side of the grounds, accessible from County Road 19 (27th St SE). Parking includes shuttles that will take you from the parking lot to the doors of Norsk Høstfest. To see our official parking map, click here.
We sure do! You can stay on the festival grounds. Norsk Høstfest can accommodate over 1,000 RVs at our grounds and offer an RV hospitality center for our campers. You may purchase your camping pass soon!
From Burdick Expressway, go north on 27th St NE, then left (west) on 4th Ave NE. Enter the grounds at gate A, follow signs to the RV hospitality check-in. There you will pick up your pre-paid parking packet and a parking lot attendant will show you to your RV space.

Pets are not allowed inside Norsk Høstfest due to allergies, sensitivities and overall safety of our guests — and even the safety of your pet! Norsk Høstfest complies with ADA law and trained service animals are permitted to perform their duties. Please note: Emotional Support animals are not protected by ADA law and will not be allowed inside Norsk Høstfest as they are not a certified trained service animal. Service animals are required to be checked in with Norsk Høstfest security before entering the festival and must be on leashes at all times and must be visibly marked as a service animal by wearing a designated collar, vest or harness.
Pets traveling with RVers are most welcome, but we ask that you come with a leash and a pooper scooper. It also is a great idea to have your pet wear a collar with identification tags and an emergency contact number (cell phone) during the course of your stay in case your pet gets lost. Please always leave your pet inside your RV and NOT your car when attending the festival.
