It brings 60,000 people from the US, Canada, and Scandinavia to Minot for a celebration of the Scandinavian Heritage.
And this year, with a big new addition, the Hostfest is expected to attract a not only bigger, but younger crowd than ever.
Statoil, a Norwegian oil company, has adopted Tromso Hall, for their program created to promote a healthy future for young people.
This program, The Heroes of Tomorrow, will be going on for the duration of the Hostfest and will have attractions such as the Cultural Village, and a variety of activities for the younger generations.
The idea is to teach kids about history and culture, while preparing them for a successful future.
(David Reiten, President of Hostfest) "It's very interactive. They have lots of programs that the youth will enjoy. They're talking about not only yesterday, but Statoil really, truly, also wants to talk about tomorrow."
The Norsk Hostfest, along with the Medora Musical, were recently listed among North America's 100 best events for 2014 by the American Bus Association.
The Hostfest this year will be October 1st through 5th.
