The Second Annual New Sweden Heritage Center May Fest was held May 2, 2015.
It was established to create awareness of the Swedish heritage in the area and to generate interest in the ongoing plans for the Heritage Center. Those plans include renovation of the newly acquired Peterson/Newquist house and creation of a museum and learning center.
Each year some aspects of life in the community are featured, families, genealogy charts, etc.
