SACC-Georgia, The Consulate of Sweden in Atlanta and SWEA Atlanta would like to Thank You for your attendance at Sweden Day 2016!
With roughly 160 attendees in the beautiful and historical Magnolia Hall in Piedmont Park, it turned out to be a sensational Swedish summer celebration in style, gathering a diverse group including members and friends of the Swedish-American community in Atlanta, as well as international guests, local dignitaries, state officials, business partners and media representatives.
Honorary guest, His Excellency Björn Lyrvall, Ambassador of Sweden to the United States and Mikael Norin, Honorary Consul of Sweden in Atlanta, delivered some interesting, inspiring and insightful speeches on Sweden, Georgia and the U.S. Petite Auberge had prepared a delicious Swedish Smorgasbord and Ulrika and her team provided excellent entertainment, in tune with our National Day festivities, showcasing Swedish musical culture. Stay tuned for more clips from the evening!
