The fest showcases Swedish tradition (such as dancing around the Maypole) as well as the neighborhood’s diverse population. This year expect a wide array of International food, eclectic music and lively drag shows. The event also has many activities for children such as bouncy slides and face painting.
According to the event’s producer, “the suggested donation is $10 and all the proceeds benefit the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce.
