The Almedalen Week (Almedalsveckan, sometimes also called Politikerveckan i Almedalen) is an annual event taking place in week 27 in and around Almedalen, a park in the city of Visby on the Swedish island Gotland.
With speeches, seminars and other political activities, it is considered an important forum in Swedish politics. During the week, representatives from the major political parties in Sweden take turns to hold speeches in Almedalen. The origin of the Almedalen Week is the speeches held by Olof Palme every summer in Almedalen in Visby, beginning in 1968. The first official Almedalen Week took place in 1982, when the Social Democrats started to organise economic seminars. As a response, the other political parties started to take a more active part.
