In Sweden, the Midsummer Festival is celebrated on a Friday between June 19 to 25, celebrating the longest day of the year: the Summer Solstice. And while we can’t all hop on a plane to Sweden and join in the Small Frogs’ Dance around the Maypole, we can celebrate by going to the Midsummer Buffet at Ikea on June 23.
It’s a Swedish tradition to have lots of food during the Midsummer Festival. Ikea is taking the idea to heart, offering access to their Midsummer Buffet to all Ikea customers. We’ve got all the details you should know including prices, locations, and what you can expect from this annual event.
