Andersonville loves to celebrate the neighborhood's roots as a community of Swedish immigrants (have you seen the water tower with the Swedish flag emblazoned on it?), and the annual Hygge Fest is another event that embraces the Scandinavian aesthetic. Named after a Danish term that means "cozy," the three-day event sends attendees to local businesses, where they'll find sales, tastings and special events. Find special Swedish treats at a pop-up cafe hosted inside the Swedish American Museum, shop sales at stores like Alley Cat Comics, Andersoville Galleria and Enjoy, and bring unused N95, KN95 and KN94 masks for The North Side Community Mask Drive mutual aid group. Check out the festival's website for a full list of participating stores and events.
