Liberia's 2023 Independence Day Celebration in Stockholm, Sweden

Updated: Jun 11

The Liberian Swedish Association, LSA, is excited to announce a two-day celebration in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, to commemorate Liberia's 176th year of independence. The event is set to take place on the 22nd and 23rd of July 2023.

While Liberia's official independence day is on July 26th, the LSA leadership has decided to hold this year's festivities on the 22nd and 23rd of July. This decision was made to accommodate the community as July 26th falls on a Wednesday, a busy weekday for many. Organizing such an important event on a weekday could pose challenges in attracting a large attendance.

The two-day celebration will feature various activities held at different locations, showcasing Liberia's rich culture and heritage through music, dance, and performances. Attendees can indulge in traditional Liberian cuisine, drinks, and refreshments throughout the event. Additionally, there will be football and kickball matches, adding to the festive atmosphere. All are encouraged to join in and honor Liberia's independence and the freedoms it represents.

According to the planning committee, the schedule for this year's celebration is outlined as follows:

DAY 1: Saturday, July 22nd

Meet and Greet/Sports Day

Kick off the day with a thrilling football match between the LSA and Cameroonian communities in Sweden at Hägerstensåsen BP, located at Personnevägen 35, Hägersten, from 14:00 to 18:00. Additionally, the women and girls of the LSA community will showcase their skills in a kickball match.

  • DAY 1: Saturday, July 22nd - Evening

Independence Day Ball/Party

Later in the evening, join us for the Independence Day Ball/Party. This event will feature a brief ceremony/conference highlighting key activities within the LSA community and Liberia, followed by an electrifying all-night party with dance, music, and live performances by DJ Junior, one of Stockholm's finest DJs. Join us at Månskävägen 10B, Kungens Kurva, Stockholm, from 22:00 to 04:00.

  • DAY 2: Sunday, July 23rd


On Sunday, July 23rd, join us for a delightful barbecue/grilling event. Enjoy games such as checkers/draughts, Lulu, cards, and more, along with activities for the kids. We encourage everyone to bring food for the grill, and we'll provide charcoal and gifts for the kids. The event will be held at Varby Gård Strand, Stockholm, starting at 14:00.

The LSA leadership anticipates a significant turnout of Liberians from across Sweden and beyond and invites the entire community to attend and show their support. This celebration is open to the public and offers a wonderful opportunity to come together and honor Liberia's hard-earned independence.

SAVE THE DATE and make plans to join us for this year's festivities as we celebrate Liberia in grand style!
