EVENT: Crayfish party at IKEA in Ottawa
August is crayfish party month in Sweden. Never tried crayfish? IKEA Ottawa is having a Crayfish Party with all the trimmings on August 16, 5pm-7:30pm-7:30 pm.
IKEA Ottawa will host its annual Swedish Crayfish Party – an all-you-can-eat crayfish buffet, as well as other Swedish delights.
The Crayfish Party is a Swedish tradition that dates back to the 1800’s, when crayfish fishing was limited to August and September. To celebrate the beginning of crayfish fishing season, families and friends would host late summer parties – gathering, dressed in paper hats and colorful crayfish themed bibs to enjoy good food and good company amongst the sound of music and clinking classes.
Join us for our own version of the kräftskiva with Swedish delicacies and a night of music and local entertainment!
Date: Wednesday August 16
Location: IKEA Restaurant
IKEA FAMILY members $19.99
Children (12 & under) $9.99
Tickets are limited and can be purchased at the IKEA Restaurant and Swedish Food Market. Alcohol is sold separately.
