Midsommarfest must have changed a lot since it began over 50 years ago, because, despite the name, it seems to have strayed a bit from its Swedish roots. Regardless, it's a fun time to walk around and check out all the shops and food.

It's true that this festival doesn't feel terribly Swedish-themed (maybe it used to be), but it's still a great time in Andersonville. There's a mix of performances and activities for all ages.
