2022 Sons of Norway District IV Convention

Thu Jun 16, 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Sons of Norway Kringen Lodge #4-025 will host the 2022 District IV Convention in Fargo at the Holiday Inn. 

The Kringen Lodge in Fargo, ND welcomes you to our District IV Sons of Norway Convention to be held in Fargo, ND from June 16-18, 2022. After canceling the 2020 convention, we look forward to an in-person gathering this summer, where we can freely visit with one another to renew acquaintances and discover new friends. We will also provide a virtual option for the business portion of the convention for delegates who are not able to participate in person.

The Sons of Norway Kringen Lodge, 722 2nd Ave. N., in downtown Fargo will be the site for the opening Memorial Service on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., followed by the District IV President’s Reception and Dinner at 7:00 p.m. Registration, which includes meal tickets, will be Thursday 3:00 – 4:45 p.m. at the Holiday Inn and resume Friday morning. A bus will leave the Holiday Inn at 4:45 p.m. for the Kringen Lodge.

On Friday, June 17, all convention events will be held at the Holiday Inn, with the Grand Banquet in the evening. Following breakfast and check-out on Saturday morning at the Holiday Inn, the workshops and concluding ceremonies will be held at the Kringen Lodge. The convention will adjourn early Saturday afternoon.

The registration cost has been set at $240 for the in-person delegates and $175 for virtual delegates. Non-delegates are welcomed at a registration cost of $175 which includes all meals.
