About us

Every year, usually in August, Kulturhavn Festival shed light on Copenhagen’s harbour by kickstarting the new cultural and sports season with an abundance of entertaining, challenging and free activities for everyone. Associations and actors from Copenhagen are behind the festival that builds on the values of co-creation, community and inspiration across contributors.

Kulturhavn Festival first set out in 2001 with three main objectives:

  • To inspire and motivate the audience to engage more in culture and leisure-time by giving them the opportunity to try out new activities and enjoy some sneak previews from the cultural season that lies ahead
  • To familiarise the citizens with Copenhagen Harbour as an urban space, encouraging people, associations, cultural institutions and commercial activities to use and develop this blue urban space
  • To act as companion and a marketing platform for the city's associations and cultural institutions

In 2021 we celebrate Kulturhavn Festival on August 27-29th. 
See you in the harbour!
