Celebrating 40 Years of Norsk Høstfest

“Home of North America’s largest Scandinavian festival” – Minot, N.D., proudly embraces its claim to fame as host of Norsk Høstfest, the annual celebration of Nordic heritage that draws its audience from around the world.

Founded in 1978, the September 2017 festival was a celebration of Norsk Høstfest’s 40th anniversary. Dubbed “40 Years of Pure Scandimonium,” this year’s events lived up to the expectations of both guests and the festival organizers who deemed it a great success – thanks, in part, to KK BOLD.

“Our relationship with KK BOLD over the past 10-plus years has continued to grow. I view it as a partnership. They are beside us working on the strategy of the event and lead us to make the right marketing decisions,” said David Reiten, president.

“I trust KK BOLD to do what is best for Høstfest. Our 40th was a success, and I look forward to working with KK BOLD on the marketing of the 2018 festival and beyond,” Reiten said.

KK BOLD’s relationship with Norsk Høstfest began simply enough with redesign of its website in 2005. Today, we are its full-service advertising agency, providing strategic direction for their annual marketing campaigns as well as a broad range of services, including promotion development, graphic design, media placement and social media management.

Recapturing Scandinavian history and traditions in art that appeals to today’s audience provides a highly creative outlet for the KK BOLD team. Samples of the 2017 Høstfest campaign collateral include:
