Medora Musical's Burning Hills Singers

People from all across the world travel to the North Dakota Badlands to take in the scenery and enjoy the Medora Musical. Centered around how Medora came to be and the impact President Teddy Roosevelt had on the state, the storyline of the musical brings audience members back to the days of covered wagons and campfires.

Staying true to their rural roots, Basin Electric and other member cooperatives are making their mark across the rugged Badlands. Basin Electric and Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives of Burke-Divide Electric, KEM Electric, McKenzie Electric, McLean Electric and Verendrye Electric sponsor the Medora Musical's Burning Hills Singers.

Norsk Høstfest

Thousands of people from the U.S.A. and foreign countries gather in October for the annual Norsk Høstfest to celebrate all things Scandinavian and indulge their senses in colorful sights, sounds and tastes.

Basin Electric supports Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives' presence every year at the international Norsk Høstfest in Minot, ND. Well-known American entertainers, musicians, comedians, and performers from other countries headline the nightly concerts. Craft artisans, wearing traditional national costumes from their country of origin, delight old and young alike with carvings, knick-knacks, clothing, mementos, and Røsemaled items. Everywhere you look there is food, food - and more food.

Lignite Energy Council Teacher Education Seminar

The Lignite Energy Council's Annual Teacher Education Seminar is held in the spring/early summer.
