2019-09-15   City Rally   
14:00 at Gotlands parken, city centre
The date has been changed from Saturday the 14th to Sunday the 15th of September!
We've organized an exciting city rally for you. Prepare for a scavenger hunt along some of Uppsala's most famous spots. An excellent way to explore the city and make new friends. Meet up at the starting point with your team, or build a team on the spot. Registeration ahead of time is compulsary, since we have a limited amount of places. Fill in the registration form here to sign up.

2019-09-27    Gasque   
18:30 at Pharmen building
A gasque is a traditional Swedish event, with signing, drinks and great food. A stay in Sweden is not complete without one of these extensive dinners. Our biggest event! We offer food either with meat (beef, non-halal) or with a vegan alternative. In case you suffer from any allergy, or have other dietary restrictions, we will take this into account.

The gasque ends around 11PM, but is followed by an afterparty until 1AM.
