Midsommar Celebration

Saturday, June 15, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Whether you’re a festival regular, or simply curious about the Midsommar tradition, there’s something for everyone at this all-day, campus-wide gathering.

Midsommar is included in museum admission. Special discounts/passes not applicable on festival days. FIKA will be serving counter-style, festival food throughout the day.
