Swedish Midsummer

We invite you to join us at our annual Swedish Midsummer festival! Once a year we gather to play traditional games, enjoy great food and dance in celebration of this event. It is traditionally held every year the 24th of June, but in order to make everyone able to join we have shifted it over to the weekend that is the closest to the date.

夏至祭2The traditional Swedish Maypole (maystång) is decorated with flowers and raised as the main event. We will then proceed to play games and dance around the pole to the tunes of Swedish traditional music performed by students of Tobetsu. There will be traditional snacks to be had, and plenty of entertainment. In addition, there will be a market in the courtyard and our cherished glassworks will also have a stall. 

 

 

Thanks you for visiting Midsummer festival in Tobetsu 2016.

We look forward to seeing you again next summer!
