Swedish National Day and Midsummer Lunch Celebration, 8 June 2024

Swedish National Day and Midsummer Lunch Celebration 2024 was an absolute success. Let's recap and celebrate these cherished moments!

On 8 June 2024, SweCham was delighted to host the Swedish National Day and Midsummer Lunch Celebration at the Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok.  In a partnership with Sweden Alumni Network Thailand (SANT), Swedish Women's Educational Association (SWEA) Bangkok, and Thai-Nordic Association (TNA), over 80 participants joined in a joyful celebration of the much-cherished Swedish traditions and fostered meaningful connections.  Special thanks to Dr James Daziel, Head of School at NIST, our Silver Event Sponsor for your generous support!

At the event, SweCham warmly welcomed attendees for flower crown binding and fishpond activities, all supported by SWEA, before our delightful lunch.  Our esteemed guests were presented with a delicious, diverse buffet including midsummer classic dishes and Swedish favourite desserts.

Following the buffet, the event was filled with excitement as our guests joined in the fun of the SweCham National Day and Midsummer Quiz, which is a chance to win some special rewards!  We also celebrated our Swedish tradition through cheerful Swedish summer songs with excellent support from SWEA.  Big thanks to Khun Lina Eidmark, Khun Jens Lager and Miss Alma Lager for their excellent summer songs performance which had everyone up and dancing around the Midsummer pole.

As a highlight of the Midsummer Lunch, we held our popular raffle game.  This year's event was a true celebration, made even more special by exclusive awards with a chance to win more than 60 exceptional prizes from 25 Raffle Prize Sponsors. Congratulations to all the winners!
