Herring is one of Sweden’s oldest food traditions with endless combinations and we had long thought about how we could lift the herring and its amazing history. In the end, we decided to start a family party – “Sillens Dag” – and when would it be better to celebrate one of Sweden’s oldest food traditions than on Sweden’s national day.
So on June 6, 2008, the very first “Sillens Dag” was arranged here at Klädesholmen in Bohuslän to honor the herring while highlighting the fantastic activity of Sjöräddningssällskapet. This year, we have 10 years anniversary and many fun event points lined up for our visitors.
Today, Sillens Dag is one of the largest events at Tjörn with many local companies in place. The event is projected by Södra Bohuslän Tourism, which also takes care of booking of space on the market. https://www.vastsverige.com/sodrabohuslan/
