Midsummer celebrations in Borås

Celebrate Swedish Midsummer in Borås!

Tomorrow 20 June 2014 it is time again for the annual Midsummer celebration.

Here you can read about how it is usually celebrated. There will be (at least) two traditional Midsummer celebrations, with dancing around the maypole, in Borås. One in Ramnaparken and one in Almenäs, both starting around 1 pm. 
Tomorrow is not a public holiday but most people are off work, Midsummer's Day on Saturday however is a public holiday. Glad midsommar!
