MIDSUMMER FESTIVAL Presented by NNW and The League of Swedish Societies

Join your friends and family in SE Portland to ring in the 90th year of this historic, regional tradition that occurs each June. Scandinavian roots are not required to celebrate Midsummer. It continues to be a fun, family friendly and important day with centuries-old traditions and everyone is invited!

Scandinavians in traditional dress will greet our thousands of visitors. Food and crafts are available all day from local Nordic clubs, vendors and artists. Two stages of entertainment and a beer garden promise continuous entertainment with live music and dancing (view the 2018 entertainment lineup), all with a Nordic flair. Awards and honors, including The Scandinavian of the Year Award, will be given on this day and the Midsummer Pole will be raised with much excitement and pomp, followed by festive dancing and singing!
