It’s time to get ready for Sweden’s most romantic, magical, and fun holiday: Midsummer!

Scandinavian organizations all across the United States are in full prep mode for the coming Midsummer events. And planned they have. Grand celebrations can be expected in every corner of the country much thanks to organizations such as The Swedish Consulates, the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, SWEA, The Vasa Order, and many more. 

We have done our very best to gather all events in one place, but some may have slipped under our radar. If you see an event missing in the guide, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Swedes in the States team on social media or through email.
