August 18-20, 2021

"Learning must be relevant to the total life of mankind."

N.F.S. Grundtvig, 19th C. Danish Bishop, Theologian, Educator and Father of the Danish Folk High School.

The first Danebod Folk Meeting was held in 1946. Danebod Pastor Enok Mortensen's plan was to repurpose the Danebod Folk School campus and provide programming for the public. One of the new programs offered at the refurbished Folk School was the Danebod Folk Meeting. Citizen enlightenment, social opportunity and spiritual growth continue as part of this Folk School experience. Since l946 people from all over the US (and visitors from Canada and Denmark) have come together at Danebod for a unique campus experience.
