Call for Crafters

The application round for  Craft and Commercial tables at the Midsummer Festival of 2017 is now closed.


The Scandinavian Midsummer Festival 2017 – in its 22nd year – will attract thousands of visitors.  The Craft and Commercial Tables are now sold out. We will have vendors offering special and exciting products – either traditional crafts with an innovative twist or something culturally relevant.

During the Craft Fair there will be:

  • Continuous on-stage entertainment
  • Children’s games
  • An authentic Viking Village (the Vikings actually camp out all weekend!)
  • The raising of and dancing around the traditional May Pole
  • Cultural displays and Scandinavian food

The festival will be advertised on JRfm Radio, in the Vancouver Sun and The Province, as well as in local newspapers. The fun and crazy wife-carrying contest always draws a lot of attention along with continuous entertainment all weekend.
