Minot Airport Guide

Minot has a strong Scandinavian connection from the days of the early settlers and you can enjoy some of those links at the Scandinavian Heritage Centre which shows the influence that these settlers had on the growth and success of the city. There’s also a festival called the Norsk Hostfest which runs for four days in October with lots of Scandinavian food and handicrafts plus live music on hand. July is another great time to be in Minot for it hosts the North Dakota State Fair then over the course of nine days.

Minot Info

Minot almost appeared overnight for when the Great Northern Railway could progress no further in the winter of 1886, a town sprang up within a few months totalling over 5,000 people. The availability of unclaimed land and the possibility of jobs brought thousands more to the region and the city continued to grow, despite conflicts over land. In the prohibition era, Minot was famous for supplying much of Al Capone’s bootleg liquor. Today life in Minot is still risky but from the threat of flooding possibly caused by global warming.

Minot Trivia:

  • The city is known as the ‘Magic City’ for the rapid growth it enjoyed
  • It began as a winter settlement for the workers on the Great Northern Railway
