Summer Lawn Parties at ASI

Have some after-hours fun on the grounds of the Turnblad Mansion this summer!

ASI's new Summer Lawn Party series is inspired by The Vikings Begin exhibition. These evening events take place one Thursday per month this summer and feature live music, Viking-era craft demos, pop-up activities and kubb tournaments. Each party will end with an outdoor showing of a Vikings-related film at dusk (BYOB – Bring Your Own Blanket!). FIKA will have specialty cocktails and light bites available for purchase. All ages are welcome.
