Svensk Hyllningsfest is a celebration of all of our Swedish heritage which includes many activities, games, crafts and more importantly food!
Visitors can indulge in great food such as the Swedish Folk Dance Groups famous “Viking on a Stick”. The festival Food Court offers a wide variety of great food for you to enjoy, many put on by local community and school groups. If you are looking to learn more about the traditional favorites of Sweden, don’t miss the Food Demonstrations hosted by local experts, who’ve been cooking Swedish dishes for decades. Finally, once you’ve learned about the traditional Swedish food, take an opportunity to eat at Hyllningsfest’s famous Smörgåsbord (a Scandinavian Feast)
After you’ve had your fill of food, be sure to explore the local Arts & Crafts tents where artists from all over Kansas and surrounding states have come to show off their great talents. The tents are filled with everything from pottery, baked goods, wood carvings and more.
And if you are Swedish, or feel Swedish, make sure to join a session on Genealogy and learn about tips and tools to trace your Swedish roots throughout history. All of these activities and more will help you enjoy a true Swedish celebration!
