Event Details

The Midsummer celebrations in Dalarna Sweden are the most famous celebrations of their kind in Sweden.

For many people in Sweden Midsummer is more important than other celebrations like Christmas. With the winters being quite harsh it is not hard to imagine why they want to celebrate the start of summer. This celebration predates Christianity and is therefore embedded with tradition and local customs.

In Sweden, it is a tradition to dance around a maypole. You’ll see this pole is decorated with leaves and flowers, and when they raise it up, you know the festivities have started. And, as soon as the musicians start to play local people will begin dancing around the maypole.

Almost every town and city in Sweden will celebrate this event and every town has its own specific traditions and customs. While you are visiting Dalarna, you might want to visit Lake Siljan because that is where the biggest celebrations take place.
