During these uncertain times, the Swedish Historical Society Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our Midsommar 2020 festival due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our first and primary thought in this decision is the health and safety of our guests, participants and volunteers attending the festival.
“While this decision was difficult, we felt that the safety of our visitors, volunteers and participants always takes precedence,” said Alix Fox, Executive Director of Swedish Historical Society. “We understand that Midsommar is a historic and beloved family-focused celebration in Rockford, and we choose to remain optimistic for the day that we will be able to safely celebrate again.” Below you will find resources, recipes, crafts, game and even live streaming celebrations for you and your family to enjoy! ****Check back daily for updates! ***
