Crayfish Party!

Crayfish Party in Tent
6:00 – 9:00 p.m

Summer means spending time in nature, getting together with friends and family, and of course, putting on funny hats and bibs to eat crayfish! What, you have never tasted a crayfish or decorated your outdoor space with red crustaceans, paper lanterns, and sung a drinking song at the top of your lungs? Well, the Swedes would say you are missing out on one of the most enjoyable traditions of summer!

Please join us on the Museum’s stunning terrace overlooking FDR Park for a crayfish dinner on Friday, August 16th to experience our take on the Swedish crayfish tradition! Enjoy a buffet of crayfish and Swedish meatballs, along side potatoes, cheese pie, cucumber and beet salads, desserts, and a glass of aquavit, all outside under our beautifully decorated tent.

$60 for ASHM and SACC Philadelphia members and $70 for non-members. Register online by August 12th.
