Kulturhavn


The festival has been running for several years and the range of fun things to do means that there is something of everyone; from theatre and dance to live music and sports. The highlights include swimming and diving competitions - why not? It’s a harbour! And some races on the water, including kayaking and rowing. There are over 100 local organisations that take part and it’s free for locals and visitors to come and enjoy. There are even free shuttle boats and water buses so you can get there easily!
