The Nordic Spirit 2015 exhibit will be a ret­ro­spec­tive of the FIRST (revived) SCANDINAVIAN MIDSUMMER FESTIVAL. It was cel­e­brated in Vanier Park in 1986. From that huge event and the peo­ple involved in its plan­ning – our cur­rent Scan­di­na­vian Cul­tural Soci­ety evolved.  The bulk of the plan­ning hap­pened in 1985–86 – 30 years ago.

The 1986 Scan­di­na­vian Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee was the found­ing group and event of our Scan­di­na­vian Cul­tural Soci­ety as we know it today.
If any­one has pic­tures of that com­mit­tee and event, please con­tact me at 604–200-5700  or send me an email at
Thank you, –Robert Asgeirsson
