Calendar of Events & Festivals 2017

It is that time of year again... time to publish my annual list of events and festivals in Stockholm. Hopefully this will help you in planning when you want to visit or, if you have already booked your trip, what to do during your visit. In the list are the main events and festivals. There are of course a myriad of smaller sporting events, concerts and other happenings that aren't listed. If you are staying at the Rival Hotel, contact me directly and I can let you know what else is happening during your stay. Keep in mind that even though a certain event is going on during your stay which you are not interested in... it may affect your stay nonetheless. For example, a large sporting event (i.e. marathon) will mean road closures and traffic problems, a popular concert or convention will mean fully booked hotels & restaurants and a bank holiday will mean banks, liquor stores and certain shops will be closed.
It is still early in the year and I will be adding events as they are announced, so make sure to check back now and again ahead of your visit. Some of the links might not work yet for later events (or they direct to last year's information), just keep checking back to see when they update their websites. I have put in some of the larger fairs, but there are a plethora of them going on, covering all sorts of interests from gardening to design to boating. Check the Stockholm Fairground's website (Stockholmsmässan) to see if there is something that piques your interest.

July. This is generally a slow month with events and festivals as most Stockholmers have their summer vacation at this time and tend to leave the city.
August (EDIT: I have made a more detailed list for August here)
  • until the 3rd- continuation of Sweden Horse Show (see above).
  • 10th- Nobel Day.
  • 13th- Lucia Day.
  • 24th & 25th- Christmas (the 26th is also a bank holiday).
  • 31st- New Year's Eve.
