Events in Denmark

Planning a trip to Denmark? Check out when and where the coolest events, concerts and festivals are taking place. We’ve picked out the country’s best and most happening events from foodie feasts and folk festivals to the let-it-all-hang-out Pride week.

Some are peculiarly Danish – how about joining in a Viking battle in Aarhus? – or downright quirky – Organic Cow Day in Jutland anyone? Others, such as Copenhagen Fashion Week, are ultra-chic and attract the stylish set to town.

And there’s plenty for culture vultures to get their teeth into too, from the Crime Book Festival in Horsens to Copenhagen’s Kurdish Film Festival.
