Dyrskun

Since 1866 there has been an agricultural exhibition in Seljord. What started as a Telemark Cow event is today the country's largest trade and agricultural trade fair, with 90,000 visitors spread over three days. Over the past 150 years, over five million visitors have been inspired by telemarkskyr, innovative exhibitors and traders, cultural experiences and new technology. The event has become an important part of the lives of thousands of families. For many, the Dyrsku’n is a sacred and annual tradition.
 
Dyrsku'n has its roots as a cow exhibit that were held in West Telemark in the 1850s to form the culinary field fair. The first fesjå was held in Kviteseid in 1856, after the initiative of state economist Johan Lindeqvist. The Fesjåene became a big event and at the same time there was a need for a fixed space with sufficient funds. The municipality of Seljord applied in 1865 for the Inner Ministry to hold an annual animal shelter for the Government of Norway. Even Høyesen Nordgarden stood with a 100 acre area at its disposal. On 17. September 1866, the State's first annual Kvæg Exhibition in Seljord was organized.
 
Over the years, Dyrsku'n has evolved into a folk party with many activities spread over the 150 target area. The animal exhibitions, not least the horse show, are still central to the event, but there are also exhibitions of arts and crafts, forestry and more related to traditional and modern agriculture and rural life. In addition, there is a large sales show with a host of goods and services, as well as entertainment and tivoli. Dyrsku'n is always arranged 2nd Friday in September.

 We warmly welcome you to the Dyrsku'n!
