Midsommar in Scandinavia is a natural holiday, celebrated on June 21, the longest day of the year. To honor this very special tradition and to pay tribute to our many Scandinavian neighbors and friends, we hold our own Midsommar celebration on the same day each summer. Erecting a May Pole, creating colorful floral wreaths for wearing, plus singing, dancing, feasting and general cavorting are the rules of the day.
Chocolate & Cheese Fest
Not the time to count calories, this deliciously decadent day is a feast for the eyes and appetites of chocolate and cheese lovers everywhere. Dozens of the area's most renowned chefs serve hundreds of delectable chocolate and cheese-laden hors d'oeuvres, snacks and desserts, attracting a huge, hungry crowd from all corners of the state and beyond.
Music fills the air, cravings are satisfied and fun is had by young and old.
The feast of Sweden's Saint Lucy is quite an event at the Landgrove Inn. Traditional Scandinavian foods are served in our dining room which is decorated to honor the occasion. Each year, a special Lucia is crowned before leading the choir in singing a collection of holiday songs. It's an altogether fun and festive evenings that helps jump start the special holiday season.
The Fourth of July
Nowhere we know of celebrates the birth of our nation with as much fanfare and fun as the tiny little hamlet of Landgrove. Serious softball and a parade unlike any other kick off the day. A “bring-your-own”, late day picnic precedes a remarkable fireworks display as nighttime descends on our otherwise peaceful meadow under the stars. For anyone interested in experiencing small town America at its very best, this is a weekend well worth making the trip!
