A Swedish tradition, the Crayfish Party dates back to the 1800’s when restrictions were placed on crayfish fishing season. August marked the beginning of crayfish season or the “crayfish premier." To celebrate, families and friends would host late summer parties – congregating in paper hats and colorful crayfish-themed bibs – to enjoy good food and good company.  

This season is all about food together with people you care about,” said Deidra Cunningham, Public Relations Manager – IKEA Atlanta. “In Sweden, the Crayfish Party or 'kräftskiva' is a loved and celebrated food tradition that we share with all of our customers annually. It’s a cultural experience everyone can enjoy!
