Mark the shortest day and longest night of the year at the American Swedish Institute with our annual Winter Solstice Celebration! Since pagan days, solstice has traditionally meant the "year as reborn," with ancient (and modern) Scandinavians fusing it into the longer “Jul” or Yule season. ASI celebrates this powerful seasonal juncture with fun, festivity and performance.
FIKA will serve a special festival menu with small plates and warm glögg (Swedish mulled wine) available for purchase. The American Swedish Institute Museum Store and its Jul Shop will also be open late for all of your last minute gift needs!
