Stoughton Syttende Mai Kick Off

Published: May 21, 2016

Stoughton, Wisconsin Syttende Mai Festival

May 13 – May 15, 2016

For a complete schedule of events:

Syttende Mai is a very colorful, family-oriented weekend with many people wearing authentic Norse costumes. There are folk dancing performances by the world famous Stoughton Norwegian Dancers, exhibits of Norwegian rosemaling (painting) and hardanger embroidery, woodcarving, Norse costume style show, Norwegian church services, smorgasbord of Norwegian foods, a variety of musical performances, a community parade, 10 mile run, 17 mile walk and an Ugliest Troll Drawing.

Something for everyone!

We give special thanks to our very own, Laurie Furseth, Cress Continuing Care Coordinator, for her years of contributions on various Stoughton Syttende Mai committees and Chamber of Commerce initiatives.

This year Laurie is on the Syttende Mai Executive Committee which oversees all of the planning and committee work. Laurie said, “one of our really fun duties is choosing a King and Queen each year, honoring a couple that has selflessly volunteered and given back to our community throughout the years.”

Come to Stoughton this weekend! Laurie invites you to “enjoy the festivities and support the non-profit organizations in town, such as the Lions, Rotary, FFA, youth sports groups, etc. The money they generate over the weekend helps fund them all year. It would be hard to go away hungry as there are food booths everywhere !”

Laurie and Dale Furseth
