The Food Festival is one the most exciting annual food events set in the beautiful bay of Aarhus. The festival takes place every year in the first weekend of September. It is the biggest food event in Northern Europe, hosting events such as Danish Championship in Hotdogs. Through such events, the Food Festival combines both innovation and interaction with the audiences.

In just 6 years, the Food Festival has gained momentum with around 30,000 visitors in only one weekend. The primary purpose of the festival is to communicate inspiration and gastronomic knowledge about the Nordic food culture to all of its visitors.

The Food Festival offers a wide range of special events and tastings with a special focus on Nordic food culture – from seaweed safaris to sausage-making and cabbage workshops, to gourmet picnics along the shore. Visitors of all ages will discover engaging and insightful activities and workshops.

The Food Festival is driven by enthusiasm and passion for local food culture, and seeks to promote the Nordic kitchen nationally as well as internationally. We gather some of the leading producers, chefs and enthusiasts to raise questions and create experiences around Nordic food for all our visitors.
