The annual celebration, a cooperation between the Swedish Church in LA, SWEA LA and SACC LA, draws hundreds to the green area next to the farmers market in the middle of West Hollywood, LA.
Instrumental in making the celebration possible is Ernie Mauritson, third generation Swedish American and vice president and CFO of AF Gilmore Co., which each year welcomes the LA Swedish community to the Gilmore Adobe. The Gilmore Co has yet another strong Swedish American connection through one of the co-founders of the adjoining Los Angeles Farmers Market, which was co-founded by Minnesota native Roger Dalhjelm in 1934.
