This festival is organized during the end of Sweden’s harvesting season and is free for all. This fest is highly inspired by appetizing food items prepared from Apples that includes Apple cider, Apple desserts, pies and much more. There are numerous carving designers who showcase their talent by creating magnificent art works out of Apples.
Creativity and productivity are both combined beautifully in this one-day Swedish festival. This festival is held during the end of Sweden’s harvesting season and is completely free for everyone. A range of delicious food items, inspired by the apple fruit, are offered here which include apple desserts, pies, cider and much more.

Walpurgis Night (Valborg)
Walpurgis, Valborg (short for Valborgsmässoafton), or ‘the last of April’, is a traditional spring celebration in Sweden. For students, it’s a foretaste of summer. At dusk, bonfires are lit and people gather to listen to speeches and songs welcoming spring and a brighter future.
With its roots in paganism, the Walpurgis festival celebrates the arrival of the spring season. This festival is celebrated by building huge bonfires and dancing around them energetically to ward off evil energies. It is somewhat similar to the Halloween festival. It is one of the famous Swedish celebrations as King Carl XVI Gustaf’s birthday also falls on this day. The celebrations worth watching are held in the university towns of Sweden like Gothenburg. The Cortege Parade organized by the students of the Chalmers University of Technology involves streets being lined by vehicles and people in fancy clothing.
Location: Gothenburg, West Sweden
Dates: 30 April and 1 May
Midsummer’s Festival, a traditional Swedish festival celebrated worldwide, welcomes the arrival of the summer solstice. Enjoy the magic of summer by stepping into a quaint Swedish village, and embracing the community’s Swedish heritage.

During this festival, many different communities come together dressed up with flowers in their hair and dance under the sunshine, while raising maypoles. It is a nationwide event that is hosted at every park and garden in Sweden and many people come together and sing songs and devour the herring pickles throughout the day.
