thanks so much to all who participated & supported in midway swiss days!!! such a fun event and it was a blast to connect more personally with so many of you! are you an artist and do you find yourself procrastinating in your art practice?! let's chat about it and you can check out episode #50 of the artists soar podcast to dive more into the topic. do you reorganize your home from time to time?! and do you decorate your kids rooms? i'll be sharing some new experiences & thoughts within these topics. our red pill for the week is once again on our vote and the newly released documentary "selection code". it's just 1 hour & 1 min long and well worth the time should you choose to watch. *** i'll be slowly updating my shop from swiss days sales, feel free to email me if there's something you're looking for & can't find yet on my website (k@katrinaberg.com), xoxo!

Come join us on Midway Town Square Friday August 30th and Saturday August 31st from 8 am to 8 pm!

You'll find me in the same spot as last year B47 (just North of the pavillion)...I'll be wearing a dirndl and one of my artful skirts...oh & braids...can't forget the swiss braids! 

I'll have candy colored originals huge to tiny, clothing, purses, scarves, tablecloths, cloth napkins and tea towells (brand new!), prints, notecards, and huge hugs for all!

Looking forward to it! Much love to all!

FAQ:

1. Where to park? - Park at one of the lots and take the shuttle into the square.

2. When to come? - To avoid the majority of the crowds, heat, and strollers lol, come late afternoon or early evening.

3. What to expect? - All sorts of local handmade good and crafts. It's the biggest etsy-like fair in Utah. Local music & entertainment all weekend long (Swiss Miss Royalty performances too). Food! Oh the food! Come prepared for the biggest scones ever, swiss bratzeli cookies, sauerkraut & brats, ice cream & pie, all kinds of baked goods, etc. There is a funhouse area for the kids, and on Saturday morning: a 10K run and parade on Main Street.

4. Participate!? - If you're local, our familiy's favorite thing about Swiss Days is volunteering in the food booths (and our teens/tweens also get to help with garbage duty this year...sounds dirty but it's the coveted volunteer job in their mind!). If you and/or your kids are interested, look for the volunteer tent by the Northeast corner of the Townhall and come join in the fun!
