Kräftskiva – Crayfish Party

Experience a Swedish summer tradition at ASI’s renowned Crayfish Party or Kräftskiva. Once reserved for the Swedish aristocracy, this national delicacy is now celebrated and consumed by anyone looking to enjoy a delightful meal on a lovely summer night. The magical evening, so special that it's been the site of a few wedding proposals, is held in ASI’s outdoor courtyard (weather permitting) and features lanterns, party hats, music and dancing. And, of course, there will be plenty of crayfish brined the Swedish way in many pounds of fresh crown dill and served chilled with good bread, strong cheese, an assortment of side dishes and a shot of aquavit. Our hosts will show you how to eat the crayfish and lead drinking songs.

Grab a bib and skål!

In case of rain, we'll move inside to ASI's Larson Hall.

  • 6:30 pm - Doors open for cocktails and mingling
  • 7:00 pm - Meal begins
  • 9:00 pm - Music by Ole Olsson's Oldtime Orkestra, dancing encouraged!
