Join Mångfaldsfestivalen (The Celebration of Diversity)

Mångfaldsfestivalen (The Celebration of Diversity) takes place on the 24-27th of October in Stockholm. It is organised by and for asylum seekers, other migrants, and their Swedish friends. As the Swedish weather is getting worse by the day and the sun is disappearing, we invite you to enjoy our multiple cultures, explore, have fun and make new friends. Let’s be in great company in the coming winter! It is free!
