Thousands of people visit the Scandinavian Community Centre every year to celebrate the traditions and festivities of Scandinavian Midsummer. In June 2017, it will be the 22nd time a Midsummer Festival will be arranged, with a weekend of fun-filled activities, living history and non-stop entertainment for the whole family.

Viking Village

The Midsummer Festival has always been proud to host a life-size Viking Village on the festival grounds where Vikings live, work, eat and play all weekend long. The Vikings share their Viking life, arts & crafts and culture – you never know what else may happen in the village! Vikings can be very unpredictable. You never know what they are going to do next – so this is something you don’t want to miss!

Food, Folk Dancing and Fun!

Traditional Scandinavian entertainment continues throughout the weekend with folk dancing, choirs, and cultural displays. Enjoy a salmon BBQ and Scandinavian foods such as Swedish meatballs and Danish smørrebrød and at the end of the day, put up your feet and cool off in the Valhalla beer garden.

There’s lots of fun kids activities throughout the weekend with carnival games, an Amazing Nordic Race, storytelling and much more!

Midsummer Breakfast on Sunday morning at 10am to 11.30am (indoors if the weather disagrees).
