The Stoughton Norwegian Summit Group- a group of organizations, businesses, and others connected to Norwegian heritage and culture have been meeting for over a year. Led by Sons of Norway- Mandt Lodge in Stoughton, the groups meet periodically to discuss their membership, activities, and how they can work together. Acknowledging that it’s easier to work together than to compete with each other, an idea to have events that complement each other’s activities was discussed with the result being their “Destination Stoughton Weekends”.
The weekend of October 24-26 has three days of activities based around the “featured” event: the Wisconsin State Rosemaler’s Holiday Sale on Saturday from 9 AM – 2 PM. This is an opportunity to purchase rosemaled items and learn more about this group’s activities, classes, competitions and sales. A wide variety of quality items will be offered – you won’t want to miss this shopping opportunity. Note the new location: Stoughton Fire Department Training Room- 381 E. Main Street.
A lot less crowded than Syttende Mai weekend, you’ll get to experience a variety of Norwegian events, performances, cultural items, and other events that will make Stoughton “the place to be” the last weekend of October! As you can see, there are events happening all over Stoughton that weekend with an emphasis on Saturday. Be sure to stop down at Sons of Norway as several of the groups have their events and activities there. The complete schedule can be found at www.stoughton.wi.com.
