Crayfish Party

Three People at Crayfish
6:30 pm

A Crayfish Dinner is a cultural staple marking Swedish summer. This year ASHM is thrilled to continue this tradition with our outdoor experience. Come and enjoy a summer evening on the Museum terrace while indulging in event favorites including dill seasoned crayfish, Swedish meatballs, fingerling potatoes, Swedish cheese pie, an assortment of salads, crispbread and cheese, and seasonal desserts.

In order to provide a safe and enjoyable environment, we will be selling individual tables for you and your guests. The tables will be spaced appropriately apart throughout our outdoor tent. Attendees will be required to wear a face covering while walking through the terrace and Museum, but not while seated at the table. This year food will be delivered tableside by a server instead of a buffet.

Due to the need for added levels of logistical planning and supply chain restrictions, all reservations for the ASHM Crayfish Dinner must be made by August 3rd. If we do not reach the required minimum number of participants by that date, we will be unable to host the dinner this season. Please visit our events page to register. If you have any questions about the event or our safety precautions, please call 215-389-1776 x106. Registration closes August 3rd.
