Stoughton is the place to be. Parade this year? Maybe not. Is there food involved?
"You’ll find traditional Norwegian fare like Krumakake, and some not-so-traditional fare, like the Uff Da Hot Dog. You’re never far from foods of all kinds because food stands and sit-down dinners happen all over town. Stoughton non-profit groups run all the food stands as fundraisers. Please support them and enjoy feasting at the festival!

I just told my Grandson. He's about an hour north. I told him hot dogs and beer....lol
It's like Festivus for the rest of us!
The Viking Yacht Club .
This is a useful thread if I find myself in Norway or Wisconsin.
I've been to Madison. If your assertion is true, then I think Viking womenfolk don't shave their armpits either.
They've driven all the Vikings out of Madison (but one)
Yes yes yes! Lutefisk!
Never had it but I have a fascination with it, doesn’t it have an ammonia smell/taste?
Norwegian salt cod is the best!
Men...hvor er lusekoften ?
One time when I was 20 and broke as hell... I had $5 to get through a week and had no groceries, time to go shopping. Luckily I could cook.
I bought a carrot, an onion, and made the grocer split a bunch of celery in half, a pint of milk, and this huuuuuge rutabaga, 10c a pound, and turned all this plus the dregs of seasonings I had left into a giant lobster-pot full of rutabaga soup, that's what I survived on for the week.
I haven't eaten rutabaga since.
Those aren't Vikings but I can see how you drew the conclusion.
hans og hennes lusekoften
So what is the actual occasion? Is this like Iceland's "first day of summer" several weeks early?
(I mean, that's not a criticism. I measure winter and summer the same way, the longest day of the year is the middle of the summer, the shortest day of the year is the middle of winter in my mind.)
"What does Syttende Mai celebrate?
Constitution Day is the national day of Norway and is an official public holiday observed on 17 May each year. Among Norwegians, the day is referred to simply as syttende mai ("Seventeenth May"), Nasjonaldagen ("National Day") or Grunnlovsdagen ("Constitution Day"), although the latter is less frequent."
Come for the lutefisk, stay for the disco!
Will there be surstromming?
