Skoghs Tivoli was a mobile fairground founded in 1948 by Åke Skogh and his wife, Sonja. Skogh bought Cirkus Wictoria, making Skogh's Tivoli one of the Nordic region's largest mobile amusement parks. He settled in Sala, near Heby. Åke Skogh died in 2009.

In 1997, Åke's son Håkan (1958-2011) became secretary of Svenska Tivoliägare Föreningen (STF). In 2003, Håkan took over his father's amusement company and sold 90 percent of the material to competitor Axels Tivoli. Håkan has been running the itinerant amusement park Tivolituur in Estonia from 2005.

Åke Skogh produced amusement park equipment in Sala. This company is now known as Sala Svets & Mekaniska Verkstad AB.
