Event Entry Forms


Hilsen fra Westby!  “Greetings from Westby!”

We would like to invite you to the 2019 Westby Syttende Mai on May 18th & 19th.

We hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating our festival by being in our Big Parade on Sunday, May 19th at 1:30 p.m. Parade line-up begins at 9:00 a.m., no entry allowed in the line up after 12:30 p.m.

“Early bird special”: Get your entry in by April 30, 2019, to receive your line up number early. If your entry is postmarked between April 30th and the May 10th deadline, the confirmation letter will not be sent until after the May 10th deadline date. Early entry forms received is one of the main criteria used in deciding line up numbers, increasing the chance, but with no guarantee, of an early placement into the parade line up. If the entry fee applies, it must accompany the entry form. Entry will not be processed until payment is received.


*Rules: The Syttende Mai parade committee reserves the right to decline any entry into the parade at any time if the conditions of the entry form are not upheld. 

Please note: For safety reasons, we DO NOT allow entries to throw items, including candy, to the crowd; however, we do allow people walking alongside their entry to pass out candy.  If any items are thrown, you may be asked not to attend next year.

Inappropriate behavior, inappropriate float/entry presentation, other acts that may endanger or offend the public or consumption of alcohol prior to or during the parade are not acceptable and will result in removal from the parade.


Parade line up will be around the Westby Elementary and Middle School. Finalized map and parade line up numbers will be published later.

Please complete the entry form and send by the entry deadline of May 10th.  (Early bird registration deadline is April 30th)

Make checks payable to Syttende Mai – 17th of May, Inc.
