Kraftsiva 2019

Saturday August 24, 2019 at 6PM     

The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce Ohio and the Swedish Cultural Society of Cleveland invites you, your spouse, significant other and guests to a traditional Swedish Crayfish Party

  • A social event to share an old tradition
  • Get to know fellow members and potential new members
  • Master of Ceremonies – Singing – Toasts

History of the Crayfish Party
A crayfish party is a traditional summertime eating and drinking celebration in the Nordic countries. The tradition originated in Sweden, where a crayfish party is called a kräftskiva. The tradition has also spread to Finland via the Swedish-speaking population of that country.

Crayfish parties are generally held during August, a tradition that started because crayfish harvesting in Sweden was, for most of the 20th century, legally limited to late summer. Today, the “kräftpremiär” date in early August has no legal significance. Dining is traditionally outdoors. Customary party accessories are comical paper hats, paper tablecloths, paper lanterns (often depicting the Man in the Moon), and bibs.
