The Scandinavian Midsummer Festival, in its 21st year, attracts thousands of visitors. We are now looking for crafters who can offer us something special and exciting, be it traditional crafts with an innovative twist of something culturally relevant.

We offer you a table at our festival for TWO days for just $99.75, including all the taxes. 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.

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
  • Scandinavian food

The days are June 18th and 19th.
