About Vestlandslag:

The Vestlandslag is an umbrella organzation of 8 bygdelag (Hardangerlag, Møre og Romsdalslag, Nordhordlandslag / Sunnhordlandslag, Rogalandslag, Sognalag, Sunnfjordlag, and Vosselag). The members have roots in the counties of Møre og Romsdal, Sogn og Fjordane, Hordaland, and Rogaland on the west coast of Norway. As the interest in bygdelag were waning in the late 1970s, members from Hardangerlaget, Nordhordlandslaget, Vosselaget, and Sognalaget joined forces and founded Vestlandslaget in 1979. They were later joined by Rogalandslaget, Sunnhordlandslaget, Sunnfjordlaget, and Møre og Romsdalslaget. A couple of these lag had been disbanded, but were now able to be revived as part of Vestlandslaget. Each of the lag meet during the annual stevne.
