Swedish Homage Festival

Swedish Homage Festival

Second weekend in October in odd-numbered years
Svensk Hyllningsfest, or the Swedish Homage Festival, is a biennial event held for three days during the second week in October in Lindsborg, Kansas. It honors the Swedish pioneers who first settled the area and celebrates the heritage of Lindsborg's Swedish-American population. More than 50,000 people attend the festival, which started in 1941 and is now held only in odd-numbered years.
Events include a parade; Swedish folk dancing, singing, and band music; Swedish arts and crafts displays; and a huge smörgasbord, or hot and cold buffet.
