Win tickets to Swede Fest 4

I’m pretty psyched about Saturday’s Swede Fest. I’ve heard a couple secrets about swedes that will be screened. I’m not going to leak those, because it’s all meant to be a surprise — but let me just say, this sounds like the most awesome Swede Fest yet.

You might have even seen Fresno’s Swede heroes, Brodiemash and Bryan, on KMPH’s “Great Day” this morning. Hopefully there’s a big turnout for this Fresno original.

The Beehive, of course, wants you to be at the Swede Fest on Saturday, so we’re trying to hook you up with a chance to get in for free. Details and official rules after the jump …




Here’s a recent “Something About Fresno” video with Brodiemash talking about the Swede Fest.

UPDATE: Here’s a video of the Swede Fest guys on “Great Day” this morning. Thanks, H-Mac!

My mom is coming to SwedeFest (I pilfered tickets from your stash and gave her one — eff you, official rules!) and she’ll be 60 in a few months. Also, she lives way north of Shaw.

I would say you can teach an old dog new tricks but that sounds disrespectful, so instead I’ll go with you can’t judge a 55-ish north Fresnan by its cover.

Mike Oz says:

Actually, Heather, “55-ish” refers to Fresno being No. 55 in the Daily Beast poll. Basically, if you go to Swede Fest you’re contributing to Fresno not being dumb.

Jenn says:

Sooo bummed that I will not make it out…home improvement projects are top priority for me this weekend. Looking forward to checking out the swedes once they are posted on the website.

Heather says:

Ohhh. Yeah, I’d forgotten all about that poll. Good to know my mom ain’t dumb then, either.

Though I can’t really support SwedeFest as an intellectual outing. I don’t know how many nonfiction books it’s read.

MsJoey says:

But wait, isn’t it free?

MsJoey says:

Okay I feel stupid. I just saw the disclaimer!

I need these tickets! Can I get enough for my cast and crew? :)

Jackie says:

Really excited about tonight’s SwedeFest. Also, soooo glad that I’m not dumb.
