Special events

photoSkansen has celebrations and performances throughout the year. On the main page of www.skansen.se, you'll find a calendar (in Swedish) of concerts, crafts exhibitions, workshops, and other events for the next several months.

Skansen's English-language events page describes some of the bigger events that take place each year, such as the televised New Year's Eve party and fireworks, Walpurgis Night festitivies in April, the Midsummer celebration in late June (see photos), concerts and folkdancing during the summer months, the crowning of Lucia in early December, and the Julmarknad or Christmas Market on three weekends during Advent.
