Swedish Club

Your hub for Swedish and Scandinavian activities in the Northwest!

Founded in Seattle in 1892, the Swedish Club has grown to become a center of Scandinavian activities in the Pacific Northwest. Our members are not only Swedes and other Scandinavians, but people of many cultural backgrounds.
