SACC-Georgia, The Consulate of Sweden in Atlanta and SWEA Atlanta would like thank everyone who attended Sweden Day 2017 on June 6. Over 140 guests joined us in the celebration of Sweden’s National Day at the beautiful Magnolia Hall, Piedmont Park. We enjoyed a Swedish Smorgasbord catered by Petite Violette, drinks, entertainment and Kubb Atlanta showcased the traditional Swedish game Kubb. It turned out to be a great Swedish summer celebration together with members and friends of the Swedish-American community in Atlanta, as well as international guests, local dignitaries and business partners.
The Swedish pop artist Ulrika and her talented band delivered a fantastic performance during the evening showcasing Swedish music culture. SACC-Georgia was also pleased to announce the new Swedish Honorary Consul-Designate in Atlanta – Mr. Thomas Rosseland. Mr Rosseland is looking forward to serve the Swedish community in Georgia.
