What is Rosemaling?


Photos from fests







The Twin Ports Rosemaling Society

of Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin




Scandinavian Festival

 The next fest will be held on:

September 26, 2015

from 9:00 to 3:00

at the Proctor Area Community Center

100 Pionk Drive, Proctor, MN 55810 See map.

Public admission is $3.00  

We are truly excited about our new location. The City of Proctor has been more than welcoming.

We will have use of several rooms, the hallway and the library which will accommodate all aspects of our fest very well.

There is ample parking in various lots around the building, so come see us in our new location! 

As usual there will be lots of rosemaling, carved and turned wood, knitwear, rugs and many other Scandinavian crafts. We will have a lefsa-making demonstration and samples, a tea table with coffee, tea cookies and mini sandwiches and Scandinavian music throughout the day.  Artists will demonstrate rosemaling, kohlrosing, wood carving and maybe more, who knows? Come see for yourself!


Below are just a few photos from the 2014 fest.
