About us

The Swedish Association in Auckland started in 1989. We are a small but active society for Swedes and friends in and around Auckland. 

We meet 4-5 times a year at major events to celebrate Lucia, Midsummer, National Day etc, but also every now and then for example to go and see Swedish films or concerts.

The Association’s financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. We have decided to charge a membership fee this year, you only pay for the events you participate in.

Your email address will be added to the Association’s Google Group so that you can receive information via email from the Association and its members. We recommend that you also join our Facebook Group. Events are advertised both via email and on Facebook.



If you want to get in touch with us in the Committee, you can do so easily by sending an email to info@svenskaforeningen.org.nz. We don’t have an office and we are all volunteering in our spare time.

We would love to hear from you if you have any comments, ideas and suggestions for events or if you want to help at the next party!
