Skansen Autumn Faire

The Autumn Fair is held at Skansen on the last weekend in September each year.

Tradition claims that Michaelmas fairs used to be held all over Sweden on this weekend. People traded craft wares‚ household necessities and farm animals. At Skansen, the Autumn Fair is an annual fixture at which you will meet tavern waitresses‚ stable-lads‚ farmers and smallholders bringing this year’s produce to market. The fair is organized by Skansen’s Village Institute, and it provides a taste of life at a country fair in the old days.

For more information and tickets visit the Skansen Calendar on the website.
