Dine, Dance and Celebrate the Scandinavian Midsommar at Alum Creek

Ready to Say 'Hej' to Midsommar? 

What's that you smell? Ah, yes, it's the sweet floral hurricane of mid-June nature, moments away from their show-stopping, 'HELLO WORLD' performance! And hold on ... Did you hear that? It's the collective sigh of school bells across the country, bidding adieu to algebra and adjectives for the season. 

So, what's next? An Instagrammable pool party? Nah, been there. A backyard barbecue? Pfft, done that. Friends, it's time for the good ol' Midsommar blowout! We love to indulge in the rich tradition of Scandinavia, and sincerely hope you'll join us for this damn-near irresistible feast of fun! 

But hold on ... For those of you scratching your heads and reaching for your Google-Fu, let me clear up the 'what's what' of Midsommar. This warmly-embraced Scandinavian party marks the sultry peak of summer, and is the no-brainer choice for a knock-your-socks-off mid-year fiesta. 

Let’s Break It Down: Your Midsommar Cheat Sheet 

The festivities kick-off with the decorating of a Maypole at 4pm. Get your hands dirty and awaken your inner artist by adorning our towering Maypole with nature’s finest – like pretty little leafy branches and cheery blooms (PS: feel free to enlist the help of a local florist who’s parting ways with some floral beauties). 

And for all those suddenly parched – refresh, quench and repeat with an array of cold drinks, beer, and wine (open pandora’s box and sip some Nordic Midsommar specials!). 

  • 5pm: And in case your tummy starts to rumble, feast your taste buds on the traditional Scandinavian Herring Table and a buffet of mouthwatering sides and desserts bought to you by ... drumroll ... You!
  • 6pm: As the sun starts to bow, shake a leg, twirl and sway at the rhythm of Midsommar games, perfect for kids and kids-at-heart alike. Have fun flipping your entire universe in the wild rotation of Karusellen, or put on your imaginary space-helmet and prep for takeoff with Raketen!

Oh, but hold your horses! The party isn't ready just yet. We're still perfecting the blend of tradition and fun for you. So, hold onto your flower crowns and keep those peepers peeled for more details. We're almost there, folks. Almost there
