Swedish Christmas Bazaar

The Swedish Women's Educational Association (SWEA) holds an annual Swedish Christmas Bazaar at the Embassy of Sweden. The bazaar showcases Swedish crystal, textiles, artwork, food, and include a Lucia procession performing traditional Swedish Holiday songs at 5 pm.

This event is free to the public, but I recommend that you arrive early! The Swedish Bazaar is an extremely popular event and you risk standing in a long line outside or not getting in at all if you wait to go later in the day.

Also, it’s a good idea to carry cash on you. Some of the vendors take credit cards but others don’t.

This is a great event where you can bring your non-Swedish speaking friends and family, the more the merrier!

The Swedish Embassy is located in Georgetown. The easiest way to get there is on metro. The Foggy Bottom station is approximately a 15 minute walk from the embassy. For directions and information on metro, visit www.wmata.com.

    Jag köpte 18 pocket-böcker som jag tänker ge borta som kulklappar. Kunde inte vara bättre! Och det fanns f.ö. glögg -- den söttsliskiga smak av jul. Går inte att klaga!

      Since so many people attend this event, we don't usually attend as one cohesive group. Instead, we each show up when convenient and often run into each other at the embassy.

    I'm volunteering pre-bazar so I will see you all there. Och under basaren- I will hopefully be pushing Britt-Marie aka mormor around in her rullstol, she is very stoked. Vi ses där!

      This should be fun. I've only attended the Boston one since the 80's.
