Welcome To The Flekkefest Website

Take a look our gallery of previous years photos.

Welcome to Flekkefest!  An annual celebration of everything Scandinavian held in Elbow Lake, Minnesota.

Flekkefest has been an ongoing tradition the first weekend of August since 1978.  The tradition continues this year with a fun filled jam-packed with events, food, parade, and a great community celebration.

Some of the reoccurring events each year are the Crazy Days sales on Friday and Saturday at all the businesses, along with the craft vendors, and delicious food.  There is also a community picnic on Friday night at Veterans Park known as Flekkefeast.

The key to a perfect weekend is to get your Flekkefest button and be registered for cash drawings, get discounts from local merchants, and even a bargain on your Flekkefeast picnic supper.

Saturday the fun continues with events at the museum, the library, a weight lifting competition, the parade starts at 5 pm and ends at Veterans Park with another community picnic.  There will be music and other forms of entertainment there also.

Sunday morning there is an ecumenical church service at the Park followed by the annual Elbow Lake Lions Fish Fry at the Fire Hall.

And don’t forget to stop by and meet the folks from Norway and our sister city – Flekkefjord.
