Midsommar Celebration | Kids Out and About Minneapolis/St. Paul

Midsommar Celebration

During ASI’s annual Midsommar Celebration, anyone can be Swedish for a day – Nordic heritage not required! Whether you’re a festival regular, or just curious what the holiday is all about, there’s something for everyone at this all-day, campus-wide bash.

Midsommar Highlights

  • Join us when we raise the midsommarstång (midsummar pole), then dance in rings and sing to traditional midsommar tunes (learn what frogs say in Swedish)
  • Outdoor stage with live music all day, featuring Scandinavian folk music and special Scandinavian guests – the Swedish Smålandslag and the Danish duo, Teho.
  • 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, Egos of Copenhagen tennis shoes and slippers, Horredsmattan Swedish rugs and more!
  • Festival food & beverages available from a special outdoor FIKA station.
  • Tap Minneapolis is providing a complimentary water refill station.

Note: Midsommar happens every year on the 3rd Saturday in June. This festival affects the normal hours of FIKA. Special passes and other discounts are not available on festival days.
