Celebrate the holidays with a Swedish tradition at IKEA, where their JULBORD Holiday Dinner is back for 2022 and tickets are available now.

IKEA's JULBORD Holiday Dinner is the highlight of their upcoming Vinter Fest Event in December with holiday-themed sales and activities. The JULBORD dinner will include a traditional Swedish all-you-can-eat smörgåsbord of cheese, crispbread, eggs, ham, marinated salmon, meatballs, potatoes and more.

In Canada, 14 IKEA stores will be hosting a JULBORD dinner on December 15, but select locations may have additional dates (check with your local store for available timeslots).

Tickets are available in-person only at participating IKEA stores (at the Swedish Restaurant or Swedish Food Market). Pricing will vary depending on your IKEA Family status – members can get tickets for $19.99 each, while non-members can get tickets for $24.99 each. Tickets for kids 12 and under are $9.99 each, regardless of membership.

JULBORD tickets are available in IKEA stores only on a first-come, first-serve basis. Spots are limited, so reserve your seat before they're sold out at your local store.

    • Wow that is crazy that they opened the dining room for regular customers too even when it is already that busy 😂.. which location was this? Food looks different .. I guess each location served different things
      Yea I suspect the menus vary by location. This is Ottawa. I didn't try everything, there were a few more items and a huge selection of charcuterie as well.

      Despite being open for other customers, it's still not extremely crowded. Found a table right away and I see tons of free tables, so it's all good. Last year though, it was just for ticket holders so it was very empty in comparison.

      Food selection is good, same as last year actually. The dining room is a little more crowded since it's open for both ticket holders and regular people that just want to purchase food.

      There is a dedicated lane for ticket holders. It moves in cycles so it can be slow.

      There is also a dessert bar that has all the typical Ikea stuff plus seasonal things.

      Edit: there is a choir!

    • Food selection is far better than hospital cafeteria, and the atmosphere is also different. Yea, it's the same Ikea dining room, but it is well decorated, they have a live band, they have way more staff and it makes it feel like an actual dining room.
      👍👍

    • it's in my mind comparable to a hospital hosting an AYCE in their cafeteria to raise funds. The atmosphere is certainly similar. Food selection probably wouldnt be that far off.

    • way more selection at mandarin, and generally a better dining experience. How was this a roll-eyes moment for you? It does cost around $5 more.
      Because they are kind of different 😝 and if one hasn’t been or try it yet, then it’s kind of hard to comment or even compare adequately.

    • Someone told me they rather go eat lunch at the Mandarin for similar price 🙄 they seriously never dined at IKEA lol

    • Two different things. Lunch Mandarin still isn't cheap but that is where you go for greasy AF food. Ikea's dinner is very different and they do have brand new items for this occasion. There is a place in my tummy for both of those options depending on the mood.
      Yeah,kept trying to explain that to them but some people are stubborn 😅😂

    • Wait, are you actually allowed to do this?? haha. Wouldn't mind taking some of the desserts home if we are too full from the dinner food.
      I don't think you're allowed...pretty standard buffet rules apply.

      Whether or not anyone tries to stop you is a whole other story. I'm going to go ahead and enjoy my dinner and go home. There is really never a justification to fill a container with food.

      Hahaha! Could you imagine the scene? Ppl use to do that with condiments at Costco so they stopped self serve altogether. Now they no longer have the condiments in dixie cups anymore but I think that was pandemic related.

    • Do they cut you off if you eat too much? I had that problem at AYCE before. I usually planned a squat/deadlift day the day prior and went after the protein-rich foods.
      I attended last year in MTL, but they never told us anything. We were eating a lot ... ALOT lol.

    • Might be location dependant. Ottawa has two seatings: 4:30-6 and 6-7:30.
      If they had a third seating from 7:30-9, I'm sure they would sell out those tickets as well.

    • Fastest sell out compared to recent years. Manager was shocked. Use to have to advertise and put up banners in the store. I guess many folks have not been to an AYCE in the past couple years so now is a great time.

    • All sold out at Ikea Etobicoke as of this AM
      Wow, that was fast.

      I was there on Friday the 18th and was probably the 1st customer to buy tickets as the restaurant cashier didn't know where the Julbord tickets are and I had to chase down the restaurant manager to find tickets. At the time, he had two thick stacks of tickets. Probably 200 to 300 tickets. Gone in a week!

    • When I went last year in Ottawa, it was nowhere near packed so you can pick any spot and sit anywhere you want.
      Thanks. Good to know.

      I am single. We can grab a seat together. Kidding of course lol.
      Lol. I wouldn't mind sitting with other RFDers if there wasn't any risk for Covid or flu.

      Jokes aside, is Vaughan sold out? Too bad it is a weekday and most likely I will be swamped with work, but who knows.

    • Imagine a chain store without a phone number.
      To be honest... the only time I ever call a business is when they're too stupid to let me do something online.
      If their internet presence isn't pants on head regarded I never have to call.

    • Imagine a chain store without a phone number. Thank god I rarely shop there. Basically for their wooden clothes hangers or something. Even at that, the prices have all gone up. No thank you.

      These stores are all becoming all about profit and lack of customer service.
