Askov Midsummer Æbleskiver Breakfast

  • June 18, 2022
  • Fairgrounds - Askov, Minnesota


Midsummer is Scandinavia's most popular seasonal festival after Christmas. A traditional celebration of the Summer solstice, Midsummer is the longest day of the year (June 21).

The Askov Fair Rutabaga and Fair Association began Midsummer as an all day celebration. They ended the evening with a movie. It didn’t seem that the Community embraced this so rather than just stop they decided to use it as a fundraiser breakfast to help support the Rutabaga Festival. Because June 21st didn’t always fall on a weekend, they set the fundraiser for the 3rd Saturday in June.
