TRONDERPARTY (TRØNDERFÆST) In November we got a request from the locals from the middle part of Norway (trøndere) if we could host a traditional "trønderfæst" (party for trøndere). The middle part of Norway is famous for having parties With their traditional Food, rock Music and "karsk" (liquor and coffee).

With a full house and waiting list, and a party that lasted the Whole night long, we can for sure say that there will be a Trønderfæst in November 2019 as well.
