Thank you for another great festival! We will return for the 52nd Annual Midsommarfest June 9, 10 & 11, 2017!

Midsommarfest is the annual street festival along Clark Street from Foster to Catalpa for two days and three nights of music, dancing, kids’ entertainment, and delicious food. Vendors from around the region sell their wares to passersby, local shops and restaurants welcome the warm season with specials and sales, and dance troupes, DJs, and cutting-edge plus longtime favorite bands keep the party going.

We ask a $10 donation at the gate (kids under 12 and seniors are free) that supports all of the innovative programming, events, and services that keep our community vibrant. Learn more about why gate donations are important.
