Dalesburg Midsummer Festival

Friday, June 21, 2013

Thank You for Midsommar 2013 !

Tack Så Mycket !

(Thanks So Much !)

Have A Good Summer !



Dalesburg Lutheran Church celebrates its 144th annual Midsommar with history, music, fun and food on Friday, June 21, 2013. Valkommen! All are invited to share a day in the beautiful countryside near Vermillion, Centerville and Beresford.

The festival dates back into the late 1860s, when settlers from Dalarna County of Sweden came to Southeastern South Dakota. Along the way, these pioneer families founded Dalesburg Lutheran Church, about 10 miles north of Vermillion, and started a Midsommar celebration tradition. Today, the festival features the efforts of three traditionally Swedish country churches in the area, Dalesburg Lutheran, Dalesburg Baptist and Komstad Covenant.
