A Taste of Stockholm
This early summer food festival is a great insight in Stockholm’s foodie lifestyle.
It covers everything from locally grown produce to organic food that creates a model of sustainable living.
It’s not only food, but also a big music program in different genre.
A Taste of Stockholm (Smaka Pa Stockholm) occurs during the first week of June in the King’s Garden Park (Kungsträdgården).

One of the worlds largest food festivals
Every year it attracts over 350 000 visitors enjoying the big program with music and interesting things to taste and learn.
Many of Stockholm’s top-restaurants serves food during the festival and cover everything from traditional dishes to an exciting cuisine that comes from all around the globe.
It’s one of the largest annual events in the country and it cares about the sustainability and environment.
The proud history showed that festivals and events have power to change things.
In 2010 Smaka Pa Stockholm did get environmentally certified by the organization Keep Sweden Tidy.
That lifted it into the sphere of festivals and events in Europe that are not only here to entertain; they are here to learn us and spread the word about things that matters.
With that in mind, A Taste of Stockholm also started the initiative called Stockholm Green.
From 2011, Smaka Pa Stockholm and Stockholm Green joined into one festival that has a goal to inspire, motivate and offer knowledge about the sustainability of life.
