What exactly is Danish Days?
South Dakota offers great events that afford you awesome opportunities to experience a variety of cultures. The Danish Days festival does just that! So what exactly is Danish Days? It's a weekend filled with food, games, cars, and live music. Typically this festival takes place in conjunction with Denmark's Independence Day on June 5th. However due to "conflict issues," Danish Days will begin this Friday, July 14th, and continue through Sunday, July 17th.
Travel South Dakota explains that Danish Days celebrates the “long and rich history dating back to Viborg’s earliest days.” This four-day event invites everyone to be "Danish for a day!"
