Sept. 30 – Oct 2, 2021
Festival doors open at 9 a.m. every day and run until 8 pm nightly. Høstfest At Night (Stockholm Hall) and the Cognizant Free Nighly Dances (Skien Mezzanine) continues into the night.
We work hard to get our lineup together as soon as we can and hope to announce our yearly lineup in January of each year with tickets going on sale a few days after the announcement.
It depends on what you want to see and do at the festival. 2021 tickets are still being set. Please stay tuned.
Yes. 2021 fees are still being set. We hope to post pricing soon.
Unfortunately, the ticket itself doesn’t cover all the fees associated with putting on a concert. So we have to charge additional fees to cover the cost of the event.
2021 ticket prices are still being set. Please check back as we hope to get pricing set soon.
WHAT TICKETS HAVE TAX?
All tickets are taxable under North Dakota State Law except RV camping, Høstfest University class and Scandinavian Youth Camp.
Nosebleed seats? Not in this arena! We have excellent seats, no matter where you sit! Our concert hall is actually a former hockey arena and we only have 5,000 seats to sell to each show. No matter where you sit, you will have great visibility to the stage. We also put up large screens on both sides of the stage which really make you feel right in the action. Every year, we have people who request sets in the very back row of Section 1A, and those who want the very front row in Sec. 21. No matter your seat, you are bound to enjoy the show.
No, you do not. If you buy a Great Hall of the Vikings show ticket, you will receive FREE general admission to the festival for all-day access. Your concert ticket will get you into the festival for the full day (9 a.m. to midnight). So come early, bring your appetite and enjoy the show!
The price of the concert is to see the act themselves and in 2021 we plan to charge differently for all shows.
All tickets in the Great Hall are reserved seating. If your child is big enough to sit in a chair, or if you require a chair for other purposes (such as infant’s supplies, etc), you will need to purchase a ticket for your child. Otherwise, children 6 and under are more than welcome to attend without a ticket but must sit on a guardian’s lap during the duration of the concert. Please keep in mind that strollers are not allowed in the Great Hall of the Vikings.
Guests simply need to have a Great Hall concert ticket or general admission ticket to watch the festival stage entertainment.
2021 General admission has not been determined for adults. Kids 6 and younger are free, and teenagers (7-17) are $5. General admission gives you all-day access to everything Høstfest has to offer: festival stage entertainment, shopping, dining, Viking fights, and more!

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.
You may exchange your ticket at Norsk Høstfests ONLY if you are UPGRADING to a higher priced ticket. This can only be done at the Service Desk window. You may switch to another concert as long as the change happens 24 hours in advance of the concert you are not attending.
