Crayfish party

Eating freshwater crayfish in August is one of Sweden’s most cherished food traditions. Unlike traditional holidays, there isn't one particular day which is considered to be "crayfish day". Instead, Swedes hold crayfish parties - or "kräftskivor" - from the first Wednesday in august and into the early weeks of September.

In effect marking the end of summer (and the vacation for many Swedes), crayfish parties are held outdoors with party hats and lanterns to make the most out of the year’s last warm nights of the year before autumn. The “red gold” is boiled with salt, dill and beer, then chilled and eaten fresh from the shell. Customary side dishes include Västerbotten cheese, bread, salad and a selection of nubbe shots to drink.

Below you'll find a selection of restaurants. Most of them start serving crayfish on August 8. Dates may vary slightly so check in advance if you want to be certain crayfish is served during your visit.
