Swedish Christmas Market
SWEA Atlanta’s Annual Swedish Christmas Market showcases the culture and holiday traditions of Sweden and draws many international and American families from around the state.
The holiday shopper will find unique Swedish crafts and gifts at our vendor tables such as Swedish home-baked goods, Swedish chocolates and candy, traditional and modern handicrafts, Swedish gift items, the "White Moose Table" where you can find new and old Swedish products and books, and so much more.
You can enjoy a variety of Swedish Christmas foods and drinks at our cafe, fresh waffles with jam and whipped cream at our waffle table, and delicious hotdogs at our hot dog stand.
The Market also offers children’s activities hosted by the Swedish School of Atlanta, and several performances. The Swedish men's choir "Vasa Drängar" will perform at 1:00 pm, and you don’t want to miss the Lucia procession, a famous Swedish tradition, which will be held at 11:30 am and 2:00 pm.
Admission: $2 for Adults and free for those under the age of 18. Also, free for any visitor wearing a Scandinavian National Costume (“folkdräkt”).
