Midsommarfest and JAERV Concert

Midsommar American Swedish Historical Museum
4:00 - 7:00 pm

Help us celebrate the arrival of summer and the 40th anniversary of our annual Midsommarfest, complete with food, drinks, homemade Swedish pastries, music and maypole dancing, as well as free crafts and games for the kids. This year, we are also thrilled  to announce a performance by the award-winning Swedish band JAERV! 

Midsommarfest at ASHM is hosted by Midsommarklubben, a group of Swedish-speaking volunteers who have taken pride in bringing Swedish holiday traditions to our region for 40 years. Refreshments such as smörgåstårtor (sandwich tortes), hot dogs, soft pretzels and home-baked Swedish pastries will be available for purchase. Midsommarfest runs rain or shine and includes general admission to the museum. Pay at the door (Adults $12, Members $8, Children 4-12 $5) or buy discounted tickets in advance through the link below.
