Annually since 1866

Norway´s largest agricultural exhibition attracts thousands of people each year. Great baragins, new product releases, handmade artickles, arts and crafts and traditional culture, all get the crowds flocking in.
Dyrsku´n is the great annual meeting place for people and livestock. Everyone meets up here, family and friends, farmers and contractors, horse-breeders and tradesmen, dealers and manufacturers. For over 150 year, dealers and merchant have from all over the world to the little village of Seljord.

It all startet in 1866, when the Telemark Cow was the main focus. The beautiful little mountain cow was exhibited, awarded and maybe sold during the annural cattle show at Dyrskuplassen. It didn´t take long for other traders to come along. Dyrsku´n became both a meeting place and folk festival.

Dyrsku’n has grown vast, but you can still find the Telemark Cow at Fjoset, the oldest section of the marketplace.

Marketplace and folk festival
The atmosphere at Dyrsku’n is the same as in the olden days. There is more farm machinery and fewer cattle, but the bustling crowds, busy bakers and enthusiastic traders are still the same.

City in the village
The city comes to the village, with everything imaginable of goods and people. The latest European-developed farm machinery is presented, you can pick and choose.

Outdoor market
The fair is still outdoors. Whether the sun is shining, or the rain is pouring down, people still flocks to Dyrskuplassen for the whole three days the fair is arranged. The record number of 90,000 visitors was set in 2002.

Prize-winning livestock
The livestock competition has become one of the largest in Norway. Entries from all parts of Southern Norway are represented, with well-groomed horses, cattle and goats.

Entertainment
Culture, folklore and tradition are central at Dyrskun. Spectacular horse-shows, or theatre acts with exciting themes from local history, are all on the cultural programme.

Traditional handcrafts competition
The handcrafts competition at Dyrskun is the largest of its kind in Norway. Rose-painting, forging, textiles, silver and wood are all exhibited and awarded. New creations have a separate prize.

Homemade local food satisfies
Small-scale, locally-produced food has become more and more popular at Dyrsku’n. You can taste and buy goats-milk cheese made at the farm, salted ham from pigs fed with apples, and freshly-baked kling (traditional Norwegian cuisine) straight from the warm pan.
The local producers have every type of special treats imaginable. Fill your bags with cheese, sausages, cured meats, preserves and jams, home-made juice, bread and pickled herring. Then lay out the tapas table when you get home.
