Swedish National Day and Midsummer Lunch Celebration, 10 June 2023

The long awaited Swedish National Day and Midsummer Lunch Celebration 2023 was a great success! 

On Saturday, 10 June, the Swedish National Day and Midsummer Lunch Celebration 2023 took place at Lancaster Bangkok.  Together with Sweden Alumni Network Thailand, Svenskgruppen i Bangkok, SWEA Bangkok, and Thai-Nordic Association, we gathered over 70 people at the event for one of the most loved Swedish traditions.   

The doors opened at 11:00 and SweCham welcomed everyone for some mingle before the lunch would take place at 12:00.  A great and diverse buffet was awaiting the guests with some of the most iconic typical Midsummer dishes including three types of marinated herrings, boiled small potatoes with butter and dill, smoked salmon and of course the meatballs just to name a fraction of what was offered. 

After enjoying the buffet, it was time for the popular SweCham quiz which challenged the participants with both Midsummer-related questions and general knowledge questions. The winners were awarded with Marabou chocolate which was highly appreciated. 

The highlight for many which was the final section of our Midsummer Lunch was our coveted raffle game.  This year we were delighted to give away some fantastic prizes and we congratulate all the lucky winners.  Once again, we would also like to thank all the raffle prize sponsors:

SweCham would like to thank everyone who participated in this event and your invaluable support! 

SweCham would also like to express our gratitude to Ambassador Jon Åström Gröndahl for his valuable contributions to the chamber and extends its best wishes for his future endeavours.
