Welcome to the Liquorice Festival – the worlds largest celebration of liquorice!
For the seventh year in a row Lakritsfestivalen, The Liquorice Festival, is held as the annual meeting place for liquorice lovers in Sweden. The number of visitors is constantly increasing and 2014 the it came close to 10 000 festival goers, and this year is expected to record number of visitors. It is the biggest liquorice party in the world!
At Liquorice Festival you can discover new licorice favorites, participate in a variety of tastings at a special festival price, participate in contests and experience licorice inspired entertainment. This year you will find activities such as beer and licorice tasting, chocolat- and licorice testing and even a taste workshops inspired by the erotic best seller ” Fifty Shades of Grey ”. You also have the opportunity to cook licorice dishes with this year’s festival chefs from Rent a Chef, get licorice massage in the festival spa or why not book a table at this year’s three-course menu with licorice.
The Ice Cream festival
It is finally here. It’s the premiere of Sweden’s most anticipated events – The Ice Cream Festival – for all of us who just loves ice cream. The premiere of the Ice Cream Festival takes place on 21-22 March 2015 at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm. The festival will run parallel with and under the same roof as the Liquorice Festival, and the visitor will thus have two festivals for the price of one. The idea is to make the Ice Cream Festival an annual event for all ice cream lovers to enjoy and look forward to. For two days we want to give you the chance to fully indulge in everything related to ice cream.

The history of the Liquorice Festival
The Liquorice Festival was first organized in 2009. Founder Tuija Räsänen had a wish to create an event around the flavor of liquorice. Her dream was to create a meeting-place where liquorice-lovers and the liquorice industry could meet and unite in their passion for the taste of liquorice. The first festival took place in a small basement at Kammakargatan in central Stockholm and during the last seven years it has grown to be the biggest Liquorice festival in world.
A year-round liquorice lover
The organizer of the liquorice festival, Tuija Räsänen also owns the company “Choklad & Lakrits” that runs a chocolate- and liquorice shop online and at Sant Eriksgatan 99, Stockholm. She is also the host of very popular liquorice tastings – both in her shop and at the festival.
A warm welcome, we look forward to see you at the festival!
