Typically for Filefjell's historical role as a national transport hub, Kyrkjestølen mountain dairy farm also has been a meeting place for people from the north and south and between east and west in Norway for hundreds of years.

The meetings between man in the middle age at Kyrkjestølen and around the stave church that stood here, is both famous and infamous.

Mrs. Aagot Monson runs Kyrkjestølen today and is continuing the tradition of «Filefjellsdagane» - the Filefjell days. Traditional use of the mountain has a key role in the festival.

This year's festival will have family days, photo lectures on birds at Filefjell, geocathing, bunad show, singing and folklore from Valdres and Inner Sogn, and small concerts.
