STA Annual Meeting & Networking - 01/19/2017:
Yuengling Brewery of Tampa for the STA annual meeting and networking event.
An evening of exploring the role of aquavit and beer as symbols of Scandinavian heritage and learning more about the Scandinavian Trade Association and VIKING FEST 2017.
The evening will share a “spirited” tradition of enjoying beer and aquavit a tradition in Denmark, Norway and Sweden– sometimes together, sometimes separately. We will have an exhibition from the Danish Museum that explores the cultural history of these beverages, follows those drinking traditions to Scandinavian-American communities, and answers questions like “What IS aquavit, anyway?” and “How do you ‘skål’ correctly?” Fun, informative, and engaging.
Scandinavian Christmas/Julbord - 12/03/2016:
Julbord is a classic Christmas dinner in Scandinavian countries. The word “Julbord” is made up of two parts: “Jul”, meaning Yule (synonymous with Christmas) and “Bord”, meaning table. Directly translated as the Christmas table.
The Scandinavian Trade Association's annual Julbord is the perfect opportunity to bring your family together to celebrate the holidays! While Julbord is a traditional Swedish event to celebrate Christmas, STA makes the event a true taste of Scandinavia, building on the fine Swedish traditions. The STA Julbord is an extensive spread that has evolved from a variety of Scandinavian traditions.
