Vedum is a locality situated in Vara Municipality, Västra Götaland County, Sweden with 926 inhabitants in 2010.[1]

The company Vedum Kök och Bad AB,[2] a manufacturer of kitchen and bathroom appliances, is located in Vedum.

The locality grew up around a station on the railway line Herrljunga - Uddevalla, which was opened in 1866. The originally narrow gauge railway was rebuilt to standard gauge in 1899-1900 and trains still call at Vedum. The station building played an important part in the film comedy "Stinsen brinner" (The Station Master is on Fire) from 1991.[3]
