When autumn comes to Astrid Lindgren’s World!

Autumn school holiday opening: 22-23 October and 26 October-6 November, 10 am-5 pm

1 November – 4 november evening opening, 10 am-7 pm

Astrid Lindgren’s World is a completely different experience in the autumn school holiday to the summer. The leaves on the trees turn red and yellow, and when it gets dark we light fire baskets and lanterns to illuminate the park. The fresh, clear air mixes with the scent of barbecues and freshly roasted almonds. About 70 exhibitors are on location and offer a traditional Småland market atmosphere. The tempo is quiet, but there is lots for playful children to do and discover. Everyone who wants to can meet That Emil, Pippi Longstocking, Ronja the Robber’s Daughter, Rasmus and the Tramp, Mardie and their friends.

Market programme

Just like in an old-fashioned market, there are lots of exciting, nice, well-produced and sometimes unusual products from more than 90 exhibitors selected by us. Many of them sell handicraft, and much of it is traditional. There are samples of skilled craftsmanship, and most things are produced locally, especially the food. When your stomach starts to rumble, there are plenty of tasty things to choose from. We cook everything ourselves and try to buy raw produce and products from the local area. In our restaurants Majkens Mat and Stadsmästargården, we serve hearty Småland homely fare, including tasty and well-cooked dishes such as meatballs with mashed potatoes and potato pancakes with bacon. We also have many nice cafés and small eateries with everything from buns, pastries and sandwiches to pancakes and waffles with jam and cream.

Ronja the Robber’s Daughter

As well as our usual daily programme, there are several other daily activities during the autumn school holiday. For example, you can try glass-blowing, ice sculpting, or a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. We hold an old-fashioned auction every day at Gammelgården and all proceeds go to SOS Children’s Villages. The programme varies a little from day to day.
