We were both happy and sad to have sold out of tickets to our Oregon Midsummer Festival so quickly when we released them two weeks ago, so it is now with great pleasure we announce that we will be putting more tickets on sale one week from today, on Tuesday June 1st! As Governor Brown has moved Washington County into Low Risk we feel able to slightly increase the number of guests we can safely host at Midsummer here on the Nordic Northwest Campus, and so we are inviting more of our beloved community to join us in celebrating the joy of summer on Saturday June 12! Masks and social distancing will still be required at the event. You'll be able to buy tickets on our Oregon Midsummer Festival website starting at 7 am on June 1.

In the Northern lands of the midnight sun, it's tradition to celebrate the sun and the fire element during the summer solstice. We at Nordic Northwest honor this tradition by celebrating with Midsummer Festival
Our Midsummer Festival is going to be a little different than usual this year. It'll be smaller and more intimate, located on our own grounds here at Nordia House and Fogelbo rather than at Oaks Park, but it will still include many iconic festival features like dancing around a decorated Midsummer pole, live music from local artists, delicious Nordic food from both Scandinavian Cafe and Broder, Nordic drinks from pFriem Brewery and local wineries, flower crowns made of birch and fresh flowers, a small collection of local craft vendors, kubb courts available for casual play by all ages, and kid-friendly activity stations spread out throughout the grounds. Come and celebrate the joy of summer with us!
We have determined we'll be able to hold our smaller festival in-person as long as Washington County stays in low, moderate, or high risk levels as per the Governor's official pandemic risk assessment levels. Ticket sales for each time session will be limited to keep all our guests, volunteers, vendors and staff safe, and all guests will need to buy tickets in advance once they become available so we can accurately track how many people we have on the grounds at any given time. Ticket sales will not be available at the door. Masks and social distancing will be required throughout the event, and we'll have specific signage on-site to help everyone there figure out how to enjoy all the aspects of the festival while keeping themselves and the rest of our community safe.
