SWEA New Jersey 35th Annual Swedish Christmas Fair 2020
SWEA New Jersey’s very popular Annual Christmas Fair will regretfully be cancelled this year. We look forward to seeing you at our much-loved traditional Swedish holiday event next year on November 21, 2021.
This year, we are excited to participate in a Scandinavian Outdoor Christmas Market on November 14 at the Vasa Park in Hackettstown. Hope to see you there!
Since 1986, SWEA New Jersey has hosted the Swedish Christmas Fair in Montclair to celebrate Christmas and the holiday season. The event attracts a large number of visitors every year and it is a well-received event in New Jersey.
About the Fair
The Swedish Christmas fair has something for everyone. There will be a great selection of food, crafts, and gifts. Swedish handicrafts like handmade Christmas decorations, linen, and wooden items and a variety of cheeses, herring and other Swedish delicacies as well as home baked goods (bread, cookies, and cakes) are available for you to buy. In the Swedish café, you can enjoy delicious Swedish open-faced sandwiches, waffles, coffee-bread, pastries, and a large variety of drinks. Glögg, a typical Swedish spiced holiday drink, is also being offered. There will also be raffles with wonderful prizes. You will also get the chance to enjoy the Lucia pageant and her choir singing and lightening up the holiday season, a beautiful and truly unique Swedish tradition!
The fair is SWEA New Jersey’s largest fundraiser of the year. Profits go to organizations promoting the Swedish language and culture and to the educational fund, where a yearly scholarship is given to a student for a project in line with SWEA’s objectives.
