The Svensk Hyllningsfest Committee is composed of 18 community volunteers who each commit up to six years to the festival effort. The committee includes two chair-persons, secretary, treasurer, and 6 sub-committees which include: merchandising, publicity, program, parade, arts & crafts, and smörgåsbord.
The committee also includes one ad hoc member and a Bethany College representative. In addition, numerous community volunteers commit many hours in the preparation of each festival. Each committee member is assigned specific responsibilities as assigned by job descriptions for the preparation of the biennial festival.
The Svensk Hyllningsfest Committee is a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit organization pledged to continue to preserve and provide educational opportunities associated with the Swedish-American heritage within the Smoky Valley of Central Kansas.
