Where in Snösätra is the cultural space located?

Kulturplats Snösätra is a part of so called Snösätra storage area, which is the section leased out by the district administration in Enskede-Årsta-Vantör. See map.

Regarding event permissions

If you're planning an event at the cultural space, you must obtain approval from the district administration. Email here for your application.

In many cases, you will also need to apply for a police permit, in order to host an event. The police website provides more information on when a police permit is required and how to apply. Remember to plan ahead!


It should be quiet in Snösätra after 10 PM and all events must be over by then.


There are only a few available parking spaces in Snösätra, located on Snösätravägen, opposite the dog yard.

Parking along Snösätragränd is not allowed (only for off-loading). Depending on the expected number of visitors, you may need volunteers on-site to provide information and ensure that cars do not park in wrong places.

If you're planning an event, it's your responsibility to inform your attendees that there's a limited parking space available and encourage them to use alternative transportation methods if possible. It's about one kilometer walk from Rågsved subway.

Keep in mind that other businesses operate in the area as well. It's important keep their entrances on Snösätragränd free from cars.
