Midsommarfest Postponement

The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce will postpone Andersonville Midsommarfest originally scheduled for June 12-14, 2020 to the weekend of August 21-23, 2020. This decision was made with careful consideration in light of the current restriction of large gatherings needed to bend the curve and stop the spread of the COVID19 virus. Likewise, ACC will make any future decision regarding the August 21-23 weekend with the health and safety of the community at the forefront.

We will continue to closely monitor mandates and recommendations from the CDC, the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois and other government sources. Midsommarfest is a celebration of community, and the Chamber’s priority this year is to keep our community safe and healthy.

We know Midsommarfest is yearly, a beloved celebration of Andersonville’s Swedish heritage, LGBTQ+ pride, vibrant local business community, and the unofficial start of summer in Chicago. While we hope to bring you an equally wonderful festival in late summer, we will continue to provide updates on this website, on our dedicated Midsommarfest Facebook page and through communications channels such as The Andersonville Weekly and monthly Andersonville Newsletter.

In the meantime, we thank you for your continued support of our local businesses and your commitment to staying Active in Andersonville.
