The Crayfish Party is a tradition in the Nordic countries. During the month of August, Nordics gather at moon-lit parties to enjoy the seasonal Crayfish – a freshwater crustacean cooked in spices and herbs. The feast is made complete by an assortment of Nordic delicatessen, large amounts of schnapps and traditional sing-along songs.
The Nordic Business Council of the Philippines has arranged Crayfish Parties in Manila for the past 15 years. The party normally gathers hundreds of party-goers from many countries. It is a casual, fun-filled event where guests are dressed up in the traditional crayfish hats and bibs. The dinner is filled with party games and sing-along songs for everyone to participate in. Amazing prizes are up for grabs in the traditional Raffle Draw. The evening starts with cocktails, and ends with open dance-floor and the best music of the 70s, 80s and 90s.
The Nordic Crayfish Party is a fund-raising event for the benefit of Chosen Children Village Foundation, a home for abandoned children who are physically and mentally challenged.
