MINOT, N.D. — "Pure Scandimonium" will return to Minot from Sept. 25-28 when the Norsk Hostfest is held at the State Fair Center in Minot.

Norsk Hostfest Association President David Reiten said the festival will focus strongly on Scandinavian heritage, from vendors to crafters to performers.

Some of the general admission entertainment includes The Medora Gospel Experience — A Musical Celebration; a Neil Diamond tribute show with performers Matt Vee and the Killer Vees, who are the son and nephews of Bobby Vee; Norwegian cowboy Bjoro Haaland, who has long been a popular singer at the Hostfest; Mollie B, of Jim Busta Band and Squeezebox and the host of the RFD-TV Polka Show, the Mollie B. Polka Party; the ever-popular comedy act Indian and the White Guy, otherwise known as Williams and Ree; and the Kentucky Riders.

The Viking Village, with historical reenactors, is always popular with audiences. It features people dressed up in historic Viking garb like chain mail who demonstrate live steel combat. Others show off their Viking crafting skills. Telge Glima will be back to show off Viking games and sports.
