Let’s meet on the 7 of September to experience the traditional Swedish Kräftskiva, with tastes of Swedish summer, songs, laughter and fun activities.
Details on the programme coming soon.
Traditionally, Crayfish have been eaten in Sweden since the 1500s. In the mid-1800s, people started eating crayfish as they are eaten today. The crayfish feast or crayfish supper in the month of August spread through the middle classes. In the 1900s, crayfish became a national delicacy and people in all sectors of society began celebrating the occasion.
Nowadays, the Crayfish Party, or the Kräftskiva, is commonly celebrated in Mid-August, when the nights are still warm and tender. This marks the end of the Swedish summer. All you need is some friends, a heap of freshly boiled crayfish, some beer and schnapps and a selection of silly drinking songs.
