Hit Ikea’s Cafeteria For a Swedish Crayfish Party!

You know you’ve gone to Ikea at least once just to eat at the cafeteria. (It’s okay — we have, too. Those meatballs!)

Well, looks like another trip is in order: The home chain just announced that locations nationwide are hosting a Swedish Crayfish Party on Friday, August 15.

The smorgasbord on offer will include crayfish, cucumber salad, cheese pie, meatballs (yes!), Swedish cheeses, strawberry and black currant crumble, and much more. Limited tickets are available for $12.99 per person and $4.99 for kids under 12 — so get on it!

Why a crayfish party? The tradition dates back to the 1800s when the lakes in Sweden were full of crayfish, and fishing was only permitted in August and September. Like any good party, music, cocktails and decorations (think paper hats and crayfish-themed bibs) are usually part of the fun.

Can’t make it? Celebrate at home. Ikea Family members who buy two boxes of KRÄFTOR frozen crayfish will get a kit complete with hats, bibs, napkins, a crayfish garland and songbooks.

Let the party begin!
