PAST FAMILY EVENTS

KIDS EURO FESTIVAL

Every year Embassy of Sweden in Washington participates in Kids Euro Festival, one of the largest performing arts festivals for children in America, bringing Europe's most talented children's entertainers to the DC metro area each fall for two weeks of free performances, concerts, workshops, movies, storytelling, puppetry, dance, magic, and cinema. Here is a past glimpse of Sweden's day of family fun, where children experienced traditional Swedish and West African music and culture through movement, rhythms, stories and singing. Musical workshop by Sousou & Maher 

SWEDEN IN THE PARK

PIPPI'S 70TH BIRTHDAY 

In 2015 Pippi Longstocking, the strongest and kindest girl in the world turned 70 years old! Astrid Lindgren's Pippi is not only strong and kind, but she is also independent, generous, playful, funny and adventurous. Embassy of Sweden in USA, in partnership with Saltkråkan AB and Swedish Institute, celebrated her birthday in true Pippi style in House of Sweden. 

This year we celebrate Pippi's 75th birthday, visit our Pippi page here for more
