Northern Folk Gathering
Northern Folk Gathering will be held June 23-26, 2016 in beautiful New Ulm, Minnesota. It will feature rustic group cabin camping, a long hall, and a nearby swimming area. It is being held at scenic Flandrau State Park Cottonwood Group camp. We will have Viking Games, Blot, Sumble, various presentations, and good times with fellow heathens. There will also be a tour of the Schell’s Brewery during the weekend, which is included with registration. The brewery tour is open to both adults and children; beer samples will be provided at the conclusion of the tour and children and non-drinkers will be offered 1919 Root Beer as a beverage.
The cost for a single registration is $85.00 which includes cabin and meals.
A family of 2 adults and up to 3 children (17 years of age and younger) is $150.00. Additional children 17 and younger are $25.00 per child, with family registration. T-shirts for this event are preorder only. Shirts will not be sold onsite, or after event.
This year the Midwest Thing will return to Minnesota and will be held once again at Northern Folk Gathering. Bring your kindred, and speak about upcoming matters of importance to the region. Have your voice heard, and help us to shape our region. We chose an intimate location, to give attendees maximum Heathen Fellowship time, so register early, space is limited and the site will fill up quickly.
We ask that all attendees donate an item worth a minimum of $25 to the auction so we may
make this an annual event. We help fund NFG through the auction. Homemade or store-bought items are welcome. We accept cash and all major credit cards for purchases on site.
The following meals will be provided: Thursday dinner; Friday brunch and dinner; Saturday brunch and dinner feast. The meals are wholesome and made fresh daily. We are known for good food and no one leaves a meal hungry.
This is cabin camping, so bring your gear. See FAQ for list of basic items you may need. The event is rain or shine. No refunds will be given.
Presentations and volunteers are needed and wanted. We are starting to make the schedule now,
spots are on a first come, first taken basis. We limit the amount of scheduled programming, for the event. We like to focus on heathen fellowship, not classes. So, If you want to lead a discussion, or a workshop, please contact us as soon as possible to see if we have time slots available.
Keep an eye on this page, more information will be posted as it becomes available.
