Carla Oja

2019 Festival Co-Chair


Carla Oja shares the co-chair position for the Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival with Tony Larson. Oja has a degree in resource recreational management and is an instructional assistant at Lewis and Clark School in the Astoria School District. She’s former manager at Tapiola Pool and a long-time swim teacher and coach. Oja’s husband Alan is of Finnish descent and Carla recently found out through ancestry testing that she is also of Scandinavian descent. All four Oja children were active in the festival dance groups, courts, and flag ceremonies when they were growing up and their mother says they would rather miss Christmas than the Midsummer Festival!
