Family Festival

September 7 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us in the Museum parking lot, located on the corner of Foster and Ashland (location will be moved indoors if the weather does not cooperate), for a day of family fun.

Since 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the second man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin is Swedish-American, we will take this opportunity to celebrate the event with activities occurring throughout the day. Festivities include face painting, games, crafts, giveaways, raffles and more. Of course, we will be serving Swedish food as well! Most things at the festival will be free, however a few items will have a fee.

Bring your family and friends to this day long party that ends with a performance by Smörgåsbandet starting at 4 p.m.
