Basin Electric, in cooperation with Touchstone Energy, recently wrapped up another successful year in sponsoring America’s largest Scandinavian festival, Norsk Høstfest. Cooperative employees and retirees volunteered at the Touchstone Energy informational booth, which features information on energy efficiency, commemorative Høstfest buttons, daily prize drawings, and free fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies. Additionally, Touchstone Energy is the exclusive sponsor of Copenhagen Hall, the Great Hall of the Vikings and the radio booth. Throughout the week, the halls feature non-stop performances and well-known entertainment. This year, some of the artists included Merle Haggard and Josh Turner with special guest Danielle Bradbery. Various radio personalities also broadcast live from the radio booth.
Check out some of the social media posts that went out from Touchstone Energy Copenhagen Hall and the radio booth during the festival.
