Bazaar & St Lucia

SWEA-DC-Bazaar-2012-(6)jpgThe SWEA Washington DC Christmas Bazaar is a popular event and kick starts the season on the first Saturday of December between the hours of 11a.m.-5p.m.

Talented artisans and vendors offer everything from gifts, crafts, textiles, books and homemade bread to Kosta Boda and Orrefors glassware, and our Swedish delicacies, such as “princesstårta” and “glögg”, is certain to get you in the spirit of the season. The event ends with the traditional caroling by our Swedish St Lucia Procession.

SWEA Washington DCs “Julmarknad” attracts Scandinavians as well as tourists just passing by, and Americans from all around the area have made this an annual tradition.

The proceeds are used to fund SWEA Washington DC’s support of cultural events and grants.

The bazaar is held at House of Sweden, beautifully located at 2900 K St NW in Georgetown. Please be advised that due to increased security, all strollers need to be parked outside and everyone entering the building will need to go through the metal detector. Doors close at 4:30 p.m.

Vendors interested in selling their Scandinavian or Nordic goods at the Swedish Christmas Bazaar should contact swedishbazaardc(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)gmail.com by November 4.
