The Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival has been a tradition on the north coast of Oregon for over 50 years.
The festival takes place typically on the 3rd full weekend of June and embodies the rich cultural heritage that was transplanted to the Astoria, Oregon region by emigrating Scandinavians. In the Pacific Northwest they found the same bounteous seas and forests as in their native lands and the demand for their skills at managing them.
During the three days of the festival over a dozen Scandinavian musical, dance and theater groups are scheduled to entertain. Retail booths will offer handcrafts, Scandinavian import items, and traditional Scandinavian foods.
