Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival

The Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival has been a tradition on the North Coast of Oregon for over fifty years. The festival takes place on the 3rd full weekend of June. The festival embodies the rich cultural heritage that was transplanted to the Astoria, Oregon region by emigrants from the Nordic lands. In the Pacific Northwest they found the same bounteous seas and forests as in their native lands and the demand for their skills at managing them. During the three days of the festival, over a dozen Nordic musical, dance, and theater groups are scheduled to entertain. Retail booths will offer handcrafts, Nordic import items, and traditional Nordic foods. It is not necessary to be Scandinavian to enjoy this festival.

This event is a designated Oregon Heritage Tradition
