Jørn Hilme Stevnet
One of Norway's largest folk music festivals, Jørn Hilme Stevnet takes place the last week of July in Fagernes, in the heart of the Valdres district (a three-hour drive north of Oslo). The festival is comprised of two parts: A week-long "Boot Camp" (Strunkeveko) and the actual Jørn Hilme-stemnet itself. The "stemnet" is really a folk music festival of concerts, dance parties, classes, and a competition for folk musicians, singers and dancers.
