Esbjerg Festival Week is celebrated every year in August. It is a concurrence of more than 200 cultural activities for guests of all ages. The activities are centered in the square and in many other places such as streets, parks, harbour, churches and music venues.
Esbjerg Festival Week is the city festival and there is something to suit all ages. Festugen has been growing since its inception and every year we strive to develop new and old activities so that Esbjerg Festuge continues to be interesting to visit year after year. But it's not just us at the office that contribute to the festival; there are many of the city's cultural institutions, cafe / restaurants and associations that create activities for this special week.
The "Made in Esbjerg" concept gives room for new and experimental music. As the tradition offers, we invite you to a lot of concerts at the main square, and you can view the timings in our program list.
The festival week is a huge parable of art and culture. We urge you to visit as much as possible during the festival week as there are more than 70 containers with crafts and art to be experienced, as well as Esbjerg Art Days at the harbour.
