Storaste Kroppkakan is Kalmar Nation’s bal. It is arranged every other year in The Great Hall at the AF-castle with 300-400 guests and has existed since 1897. It is the oldest of all the bals arranged by the student nations and even so, it retains many of the traditions that were present at it’s inception. At Storaste Kroppkakan, there is entertainment, couple dancing with a large band and most of all; “” (a traditional kind of dumpling, consisting mainly of potatoe, pork and allspice). During the actual dinner, there is also an eating contest, where whoever can eat the most “dumplings” wins!’
Next Storaste Kroppkakan will be in 2019!
