This year, ASI will be celebrating Midsommar over five days! With a mixture of virtual programming (like themed cooking and craft classes) and in-person events (like music workshops and dancing around the Midsommar pole), there will be a little something for everyone to get you celebrating like a Swede. As always, FIKA café will be serving up special Midsommar food and drink. Check out the schedule below for happenings at the museum and virtually!
