Restaurant Days is a 3 day festival held each summer at the beginning of June, in Kungstradgarden (or Kings Garden), a beautiful public park in downtown Stockholm.
During Restaurants Days, many (dozens and dozens) of Stockholm's restaurants, cafes, and pubs set up temporary shop in Kings Garden, in covered pavillions and kiosks. To add to the festivities, they have the "World's Largest Business Lunch" on the Friday of the festival. People from all over Stockholm flock to Restaurant Days and enjoy the good food and drink.
Other events include a waiter's race, and a chef's challenge among the renowned chefs of Stockholm. Additionally, there are multiple stages for music and other performances. There is lots of seating to enjoy food and drink, both covered and uncovered.
I walked into the Restaurant Days celebration without knowing what the party was all about. I had read about it, and what fun it was to find it and join the fun with such little effort!
You can easily reach Kings Garden from anywhere in Stockholm. Take the subway (Tunnelbana or T-Bana) to the Kungstradgarden station, walk out of the station 2 blocks to the right, and you are there. Restaurant Days in Kings Garden takes place at the beginning of June, this year it was June 1st through the 4th.
