Midsommar 2018

Midsommar 2018

Where anyone can be Swedish for a day – no Nordic heritage required!

Summer is short, so get outside and enjoy ASI’s Midsommar Celebration! 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 say 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

Please note: No discounts or special museum passes are accepted during festivals.

Included in museum admission: $10 adults; $7 ages 62+, $5 ages 6-18 and students with ID; free for ASI members.


No advanced registration – tickets must be purchased the day of the event.
