A food festival is a festival, usually held annually, that uses food, often produce, as its central theme. These festivals have always been a means of uniting communities through celebrations of harvests and giving thanks for a plentiful growing season. 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.
