Midsommar 2022

Welcome to Midsummer celebration 2022

In mid-June, school is out and nature has burst into life.  This calls for celebration! In Scandinavia friends and family gather for the most typical tradition of all: Midsummer. And since we love Scandinavian traditions we invite you to celebrate midsummer with us - welcome!

4PM -  Decorating our beautiful Maypole and then elevating it to the sky!

For this, we would really appreciate your donated material - small branches or sprigs with green leaves, plus a variety of flowers. The flowers may be your own sourcing, or ask for those discarded by a florist. 

For those not busy with the Maypole, enjoy some refreshments from our beverage department with cold soft drinks, beer, and wine, plus of course some Scandinavian Midsommar specials. . .

5PM - Dining

We start with traditional Scandinavian Herring Table, plus the appetizers or salads you are bringing to share. Then, main course. Some grilled meats are provided by the Club - augmented by your sides or special Scandinavian treats. We finish with a variety deserts that you are bringing to share. The Club provides all beverages. We look forward to taste all your goodies! 

  Last names A-L: Bring salads/ appetizers / sides / small dishes/ bread.
