The 19th Annual Swedish Crayfish Party

Date: Sat­ur­day, August 26th, 2017
Time: 6pm
Loca­tion: Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre
Cost: pre­sale $45.00, At the door: $60
Con­tact: Vancouver@nullswea.org

Time for cray­fish! Tra­di­tion­al­ly,  a Swedish cray­fish par­ty takes place in the end of the sum­mer. Cray­fish par­ties have spread to all the Nordic coun­tries and are gen­er­al­ly held dur­ing August. This tra­di­tion was start­ed because cray­fish har­vest­ing in Swe­den was, for most of the 20th cen­tu­ry, legal­ly lim­it­ed to late sum­mer.  Since the Swedish cray­fish became extinct, Swedes all over the world rely on IKEA and Chi­na to deliv­er these yum­my and deli­cious shell fish for our some­times row­dy par­ties.

It is the 19th time the Swedish Women’s Edu­ca­tion­al Asso­ci­a­tion arranges a true cray­fish par­ty with all the cus­tom­ary par­ty acces­sories that are oblig­a­tory. These con­si­tute of com­i­cal paper hats, paper table­cloths, paper lanterns (often depict­ing the Man in the Moon), and bibs. A cheer­ful atmos­phere pre­vails amid noisy eat­ing and tra­di­tion­al drink­ing songs (print­ed in a lit­tle book­let in Eng­lish so that every­one can take part). It is con­sid­ered cus­tom­ary to suck the juice out of the cray­fish before shelling it. Don’t wor­ry, we will show you how it is done!

Sim­i­lar to last year, SWEA part­ners with the Swedish Cul­tur­al Soci­ety in organ­is­ing the salti­est event of the year. The tick­ets include a three course meal  with entern­tain­ment dur­ing din­ner, and danc­ing to Swedish music after. Only 60 tick­ets will be sold, so pur­chase your tick­et ear­ly! Last year we sold out.
