Midsommarmiddag
Midsommarmiddag 2014

One of the most ancient and revered holidays of the year, the summer solstice carries with it traditions and customs predating our own. In Scandinavia, “Midsummer’s Eve” is considered by many to be the greatest festival of the entire year. The Swedish celebration of the summer solstice is positively delightful, with special food, libations, activities and games.

Join us at Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro as we commemorate the summer solstice through food & drink with our traditional ‘Midsommarmiddag” or “Midsummer Dinner” beginning Monday, June 16th, 2014 and continuing until Sunday, June 22nd, 2014. Available 5:30PM – 11:00PM for $47.00 per person, the traditional dinner will be a prix fixe menu and served in conjunction with our regular menu and dinner service. Traditional and potent acquavits will also be available. But take care, lest they turn you into a Viking! View the menu here!
