SCANDINAVIAN MIDSOMMAR CELEBRATION will be held at Heidelberg Park, Glendale, WI on Sunday, June 27, 2021 from 1 PM to 4 PM.

Don’t miss this unique Scandinavian event, celebrating summer solstice, in Sweden, and in Scandinavia, one of the most important celebrations of the year. It is a public event, everyone is welcome!

We are sharing the park with Bavarian Bier House Beer Garden which is open to the public where food and drink can be purchased including a special Swedish dish, and dessert. In the past it has been custom to bring a picnic lunch, this will not be allowed this year as we are sharing the park with the Beer Garden.

In order to get to the area where the celebration is being held, from the parking lot, go through the entrance to the park, pass the beer garden and when you reach the barbeque grills, turn right and you will find the entrance to the Midsommar celebration.
