The 17th Annual Swedish Crayfish Party

Crayfish Party 2015

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. Thistradition was started because crayfish harvesting in Sweden was, for most of the 20th century, legally limited to late summer. Since the summer lasts longer in BC than in Sweden, thys year’s party will take place on Friday, September 25.  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 17th 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. Babysitting can be arranged if required (let us know when you sign up so that we can organise this). Only 60 tickets will be sold, so purchase your ticket early!

Date: Friday, September 25, 2015
Time: 7pm to 1am
Location: Scandinavian Community Centre
Cost: $55.00, presale $45 by sending in cheque to SWEA, c/o Lena Normen-Younger, 105-2025 West Broadway, Vancouver BC  V6J 1Z6 or sendind an electronic transfer with interac to sweavancouver@nullgmail.com. Last date to get the lower price of $45 is September 20, 2014 (cheque must have been posted by this date).

A Very Scandinavian Evening: Swedish Artists Carl and Karin Larsson

LarssonDate: Friday, May 29, 2015
Time: Doors open at 6.30 pm; Sandwiches 7 pm; Talk 8 pm
Price: $5 per sandwich
Contact and RSVP:  swedishculturalsociety.ca@nullgmail.com

Carl Larsson’s illustrations for his book Ett Hem (A Home) more than a century ago defined a “Swedish Style” that was light, colourful, informal.  It seems obvious now that his wife Karin was intimately involved in creating the rooms Carl used as a stage for their family’s dramas.

“Swedish Style” with special reference to the contributions of Karin Larsson, an illustrated talk.

A piece of buttered rye bread with something laid on, with meat, fish, cheese and toppings.  It sounds simple enough but the Smørrebrød, the Danish open sandwich, is Danish everyday practise raised to one of the great contributions the world’s culinary arts.

“Danish Style”.  Smørrebrød godt belagt med meget pynt (Danish sandwiches well stacked and decorated) $5 per sandwich, bar service available.

In cooperation with the Sweden House Society and the Swedish Cultural Society
