Join us at the American Swedish Institute to celebrate one of Sweden's most joyous and traditional festivals!

Summer is short in Minnesota and the Nordic regions, so this is a time to get outside and enjoy the highpoint of the summer at ASI’s popular Midsommar Celebration, one of our most festive days of the year! Whether you’re a festival regular, or just curious what the holiday is all about, there is something for everyone at this popular event. Be sure to make a midsommarkrans (flower head wreath) and prepare to dance and sing around the midsommarstång (midsummer pole).


Learn what frogs sing in Swedish! Join us when we raise the midsommar pole, then dance in rings and sing to traditional midsommar tunes.

An outdoor stage with live music all day will feature Scandinavian folk music and special Swedish guests Maria & Anders Larsson.

Get your Swede on! There will be Nordic know-how sessions through the day, including kulokk (Norwegian herding calls) and birch bark love knot rings!

Family activities around every corner including story time, flower head wreath making, and a Midsommar Seek & Find.

Special pop-up shopping, including Swedish clogs from Troentorp/Baståd
