Midsommar Celebration

Midsommar Dancing

Get in the Summer Spirit

The quintessential summer celebration returns to ASI on Saturday, June 18 

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.

Buy your head wreath kit now for $10 or at Midsommar for $12, then on the day of the festival check-in at the head wreath station to get your supplies and make your special flower crown.
