News Release: Høstfest Makes EPIC Announcement

October 8, 2021

EPIC Events is an events and entertainment promotor that will help co-promote the 2022 Norsk Høstfest.

(Minot, ND – October 8, 2021) The 2022 Norsk Høstfest has been scheduled for the end of September following an agreement with EPIC Events of North Dakota.

North America’s largest Scandinavian festival has been sidelined for two years by COVID-19 and its associated travel restrictions. The newly re-formed Høstfest Board of Directors have hired West Fargo and Minot based firm, EPIC Events, to book the entertainment, sponsorship, design, and logistical arrangements. This will assure a return of the festival that has become a mainstay of North Dakota attractions.

Board President Tim Mihalick says EPIC already has people assigned to the Minot office of Norsk Høstfest to begin the process of making the 2022 event a reality. “The enthusiasm, focus, and attention to detail that EPIC Events brings to the table will make it possible for us to bring Høstfest back to Minot and North Dakota. We as a board of directors are excited to have such a dedicated team working to make sure that the best celebration of Scandinavian heritage on the continent will be coming back to life.”

Mihalick noted that local volunteers that have made Høstfest possible through its first four successful decades will continue to be essential to the festival’s return. He says sponsorships have also played a key role in making Høstfest viable over the years. He’s optimistic that businesses who have faithfully supported the event will continue to be a large part of the festival.

EPIC Events is an independent, entertainment & event promoter located in North Dakota. Their main goal is to bring live events (concerts, comedians, speakers and more!) to the surrounding region. They are also committed to the arts and will strive to bring opportunity to artists to display their work publicly.

“We look forward to continuing the Scandinavian tradition that Minot and North Dakota have been devoted to for many years. We want to carry on with all the vendors, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters that have been around and keep the momentum going by attracting even more people to this next year’s event,” said spokeswoman McKenzy Braaten for EPIC Events.

Mihalick says information will be coming soon on exact dates of the 2022 Norsk Høstfest, as will details on entertainment and ticket availability. “We hope tens of thousands of loyal patrons of Norsk Høstfest will plan to be a part of the 2022 event to help us re-launch a treasured celebration of the region’s Scandinavian heritage.”
