Looking for things to do in Boise this summer? Look no further than Boise’s biggest summer party!

A bright and fun poster with lots of flowers and fun colors on a pale pink background, featuring an image from the motion picture "Midsommar." Event details below.

Of all the summer things to do in Boise, Mad Swede‘s annual Midsommar is the absolute HOTTEST, and Midsommar 2024 is going to be EPIC. In the many years that we’ve been hosting Boise’s only Scandinavian Midsommar party in honor of the Summer Solstice, this is the first time ever that it’s landing on the ACTUAL SUMMER SOLSTICE. What’s that mean? That means Midsommar is falling on the longest day of the year. Therefore… MORE PARTY, baby!! We’re pulling out all the stops this year with…

Special Guests and Activities:

Authentic Swedish food AND American BBQ fare from Rockin’ Q BBQ Company
Axe throwing with Ragers Smash – N – Axe
The red hot Andrew Sheppard Band, never before seen at Mad Swede!!
Bonfire + Sparklers to keep the party going after the sun sets

Flower Crowns and pagan Maypole Dancing
