July 24 – 28, 2024

Interviews with six traditional craft artists on the Edmund Fitzgerald Stage, each of whom has a booth in the Tori Nordic Fair where they display their work and talk with tori visitors. These interviews create opportunities to listen to folklorists as they interview each traditional artist.

The artists’ participation at the 2024 festival is partially funded by either the American Scandinavian Foundation or sponsored and organized by the Nordic Folklife Project/Center for the Study of Upper Midwest Cultures, University of Wisconsin–Madison.
