Midsummer planning meetings start in October

Date: Thurs­day Octo­ber 20, 2016
Time: 6.30pm
Loca­tion: Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre

On behalf of the Mid­sum­mer Com­mit­tee, may I extend a sin­cere “Thank You” to all the vol­un­teers, spon­sors, ven­dors and staff for their effort to bat­tle through some “Junuary” weath­er dur­ing the 2016 Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val. We look for­ward to sun­nier skies next year.

To those who attend­ed Mid­sum­mer, we hope that you and your fam­i­lies enjoyed all the enter­tain­ment, music and cul­tur­al activ­i­ties that Mid­sum­mer offered. Many of you come to sam­ple the food items that are made avail­able. A big thank you has to go to those who worked so hard in food prepa­ra­tion and ser­vice.

We con­grat­u­late all the win­ners who took part in the run­ning events and races. We applaud those who worked to sell raf­fle tick­ets and con­grat­u­late those whose win­ning tick­ets were drawn.

The Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val at the Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre gives us the oppor­tu­ni­ty to show­case cul­tur­al val­ues, her­itage and a col­lec­tive com­mu­ni­ty spir­it. We thank you for mak­ing the fes­ti­val a fun fam­i­ly event.

The Scan­di­na­vian Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val, in its 21st year, attracts thou­sands of vis­i­tors. We are now look­ing for crafters who can offer us some­thing spe­cial and excit­ing, be it tra­di­tion­al crafts with an inno­v­a­tive twist of some­thing cul­tur­al­ly rel­e­vant.

The fes­ti­val will be adver­tised on JRfm Radio, in the Van­cou­ver Sun and The Province as well as in local news­pa­pers.  The fun and crazy wife-car­ry­ing con­test always draws a lot of atten­tion along with con­tin­u­ous enter­tain­ment all week­end.

Dur­ing the Craft Fair there will be:

  • Con­tin­u­ous on-stage enter­tain­ment
  • Children’s games
