Welcome! Print

One of the objectives and goals of the Swedish Club of Houston is to locate and join together people interested in Swedish heritage (Swedes, Swedish descendants, and others) in the Houston area, primarily through informal events and get-togethers, social as well as cultural.

The Club currently counts just under 120 members who meet at various events throughout the year, such as the annual Pea Soup and Pancakes supper, Kräftskiva (Crayfish Party), Valborgsmässoafton (Bonfire), Smörgåsbord, and Christmas Traditions/Lucia program, as well as special events centered around cultural happenings.

SACC Pea Soup Wednesday June 28 Print

Join the Swedish- and Finnish-American Chambers of Commerce in Houston, together with friends from other Nordic and European Chambers,  for an evening discussing the US Shale revolution - Hydraulic Fracturing - and how it reshaped the global energy landscape!

A night of networking and a traditional meal of Pea Soup and Swedish pancakes, beer, wine and Punsch, will be served at Chef Søren's Kitchen on Wednesday June 28, 5:00pm - 8:00pm. The presenter for the evening is our own Christopher Westerlund, an avid SACCTX supporter and member of the chamber since 2008. Chris is currently the Finance Manager for Keane Group, an integrated well completions services company in the oil and gas industry. Chris will walk us through the history, evolution and current state of the oil services industry with a focus on hydraulic fracturing and the North American oil and gas market. With over 10+ years of executive leadership in finance in public Fortune 500, private, non profit and private equity Chris will give us his view on the industry and where it is going. Previous leadership positions include companies such as Schlumberger, C&J Energy Services, and Nordea Bank to name a few. Connect with Chris on LinkedIn at:

Test your Knowledge of Literature Print

Question: What do the following all have in common?

  • I Was Prepared, by Justin Case
  • The Numbers Game, by Cal Q. Later
  • Deep in Debt, by Owen A. Lott
  • Favorite Swedish Recipes, by the Swedish Club of Houston

Answer: They are all books that were never written! Of course, there is ample reason why the first three were never written... but there's only one reason why the last one wasn't: we don't have enough of your favorite Swedish recipes!

Send your favorites to Karen Wolz
(be sure to substitute "@" for " (at) " and "." for " (dot) " before sending)!

Friends of Lucia Print

As everyone knows, Continental Airlines is no more (and, as a result, we have lost our sponsor of Lucia's airfare from Houston to Sweden). Thus, it becomes incumbent upon the members of the Club to step up and donate to support the long-standing tradition of the Club of sending its Lucia to Sweden. A number of sponsorship levels are available:
