Midsommar Celebration

Midsommar Dancing

Get in the Summer Spirit

The Midsommar Celebration at the American Swedish Institute is one of the largest in the Midwest. Dating back to ancient times, Midsommar is a tradition that welcomes back warm weather and the growing season, and also marks the longest day of the year. It’s celebrated by making fresh-flower head wreaths, singing songs, listening to live music, and dancing around the midsommarstång (maypole)—all hallmarks of this family-friendly festival.
