Reusable Cups

In order to reduce our production of harmful plastic waste at this event, we are encouraging the use of reusable drink ware. You can bring your own outdoor-safe (non-breakable) cup or water bottle or buy one of our stainless steel 16-ouncers at the festival!

Food & Drink

We are pleased to have Carina's Bakery, Harmoni Lodge, Finlandia Foundation and the League of Swedish Societies serving as our food vendors this year. Come hungry, and try as many of their delicious savory and sweet options as you can! Just be sure to leave room for some tasty drinks, too. We'll be serving beer, wine, and a nonalcoholic summery Scandinavian favorite elderflower juice. Please refrain from bringing outside food and drink to the festival.


It's always a good idea to bring cash to our festivals, as paying by cash at the bar, festival gear table and vendor booths always keeps those lines moving smoothly. The bar and festival gear table will also accept credit cards. Vendors make their own decisions about what forms of payment they accept, and we encourage them to indicate whatthey accept clearly at their booths.
