Midsummer Festival

2017-05-17

We are bringing Scandinavia to the TU/e! Participate in COSMOS & SCIFI’s midsummer festival that takes place on the national day of Norway. Midsummer is one of the biggest events in Scandinavia where people celebrate the longest day of the year. During our outside event, you have the chance to participate in different activities, such as Scandinavian games and a beautiful flower crown workshop. Completing several activities will be rewarded with a real Scandinavian drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic). To really get ourselves into the midsummer mood we’ll set up a maypole and might start dancing around it as the evening goes on. A midsummer celebration would be nothing without a BBQ and a few drinks. Therefore we will provide you with the opportunity to get food from the BBQ. The bar committee of GEWIS will also sell beer and soft drinks. The price for the food depends on the amount of people that want to BBQ but it can be expected somewhere around 5€. Please keep in mind that signing up for food means paying! There are 20 places each for COSMOS and GEWIS (excluding SCIFI members). Don't worry if the event is full, sign up anyway and we'll put you on the waiting list. Also, let us know if you are going to BBQ with us and whether you’d like to have the alcoholic or non-alcoholic version of the Scandinavian drinks. If you are planning to drink alcohol, don’t forget to bring your ID. Hoping to see you there! When: Wednesday, 17th of May 17:00 - 21:00 Where: HG-Noord field Sign up deadline: Sunday, 14th of May 23:59 GEWIS member sign-up: https://gewis.nl/activity/view/3258 Cosmos member sign-up: https://goo.gl/forms/QLUuZqfEOlUeyUYi1
