SCANDINAVIAN MIDSUMMER FESTIVAL
JUNE 27-28, 2015
This is a wonderful family event with something to interest people of every age. You’ll find Scandinavian music, dancing, food, crafts, and Vikings!
The Festival takes place the fourth weekend in June in Bond Park, in downtown Estes Park at the intersection of Elkhorn (the main street) and MacGregor Ave. It is currently being sponsored by the town of Estes Park.
It begins at 9:30 am on Saturday with the raising of the Maypole, and concludes at 4:00 pm on Sunday with the Icelandair raffle drawing for roundtrip airfare for 2 to Scandinavia.
There are Scandinavian food and craft vendors, and craft demonstrations. Music and dancing – both participatory and performance – run throughout the day. The Fjellborg Vikings have a small encampment and do combat demonstrations.
It is for all ages, free, and wheelchair accessible.
