November 12th, 13th & 14th
This is kind of an odd weekend... inbetween Halloween (All Saints) and next weekend when the Christmas season kicks off. There are still some interesting things going on though!
- There are three large international fairs going on this weekend that are very popular. You have the Scandinavian Boat Show, the largest most exclusive boat fair in Scandinavia, going on from the 10th to the 14th. The Stockholm Food & Beverage Fair (Det Goda Köket), concentrating on food and wine, is going on from the 12th to the 14th, the same days as the Health, Wellness & Fitness Fair (which is probably a good place to visit after tasting wines at the food & beverage fair). All three fairs are taking place at the Stockholm International Fairgrounds just south of Stockholm in Älvsjö. Very easy to get to from the hotel... a few blocks from the hotel you have the Stockholm South commuter train station. From there it is two stations south (Älvsjö).
- Fotografiska, the photography museum, has just unveiled their newest exhibition featuring portraits and short films by the director Gus Van Sant called One Step Big Shot. This showing is in collaboration with the Stockholm Film Festival, which will be awarding Van Sant their Visionary Award next week.
